One-to-one models

PublishingPageContent

Schools use a variety of models when designing one-to-one student information and communication technologies (ICT) device programs to meet the needs of their students and the teaching and learning priorities of the school. 

Scope of implementation

In consultation with their school community, schools determine how and if the program will be implemented in different year levels and how devices will be used in each learning area and learning experience, based on the learning needs of students. Schools also include strategies to maximise participation and ensure students are not disadvantaged.

Ownership and financing

Schools may implement one-to-one programs where ICT devices are purchased, managed and owned by the school, families/students, or a combination of these. Ownership and financing models used in Queensland state schools fall under 2 broad categories.

School-provided (including co-contribution) 

The school purchases and maintains ownership of devices and allocates them to students. Families may be invited to co-contribute to the cost of the device and/or supporting resources/services and there may be an agreement that students can acquire the device at the end of the program.

Bring your own technology (BYOx) 

Bring your own 'x' (BYOx) means that students bring their own digital devices to school, for the purposes of learning. The BYOx model provides choice and flexibility as students are able to use the same digital devices at school that they use at home. Schools may encourage students to bring devices the family already owns or may provide guidance for purchasing devices.

Device selection

Schools carefully consider the learning purposes for the program, the needs and attributes of students, the capabilities and practices of teachers and the technology infrastructure available when deciding which devices are suitable for their program. There are a number of selection models used in Queensland schools. 

Schools may: 

  • identify a single selected device
  • recommend a range of devices
  • provide a set of minimum specifications
  • support optional/additional devices.
