What is BYOD?
More and more schools are adopting BYOD schemes to introduce students to new and modern ways of learning in the classroom and at home.

BYOD stands for "Bring Your Own Device" which is a new way of working that allows students to use their own computer during class to complete school work - as the world becomes more "digital" BYOD is a way for students to develop their computer literacy in a controlled environment of the schools network.

Which is right for me?

Playtech have been working with schools across New Zealand for several years now to help them find cost effective solutions to meet their BYOD requirements. On this page you'll find a few of our recommendations!

What happens if something goes wrong?
BYOD devices are an investment, and if they are taken care of they can last many years without needing to be repaired or replaced.

Although many BYOD devices are already quite robust we still recommend additional physical protection against everyday bumps and drops by using the device with a laptop sleeve or similar case.

However, we know sometimes things can go wrong - and accidents happen! so we've put together some BYOD approved packages that include 3 YEARS COVERAGE against accidental damage and Hardware Failure!

See Below for details.
