Eltham High School case study

Connecting, collaborating, creating

Overview

The JB Hi-Fi Solutions BYOD program at Eltham High School is equipping students and educators with excellent devices for teaching and learning while making the process – from purchasing to repairing – straightforward and seamless for everyone. Eltham High School chose a BYOD device program to provide a platform that allows students to connect, collaborate and create both within and out of the classroom. With the JB Hi-Fi Solutions BYOD program, they get reliable technology that supports their learning program and a responsive relationship that gives educators, students and parents confidence in the program and peace of mind.

The Solution – JB Hi-Fi Solutions’ BYOD

Eltham High School’s vision is “… to develop creative students who are active seekers, users and creators of their own knowledge…”. Eltham High School has been running the BYOD program through JB Hi-Fi Solutions since 2015. By integrating technology into teaching every day, the school is supporting independent learning and resourcefulness.
The BYOD program has also enabled Eltham High School’s educators and students to make a seamless transition to remote teaching and learning.
“Having an established BYOD program and a great relationship with JB Hi-Fi Solutions has meant that the transition to remote learning has been straightforward – I feel that we were ready for it.” Natalie Heath, eLearning / ICT Leader

Today, Eltham High School has more than 1250 students and 115 staff. The school believes in developing the next generation of ethical, moral, happy and respectful citizens who have the skills to be resilient and be optimistic about the future.

  • Trusted brand – partnering with recognised and trusted brands in JB Hi-Fi has given the school and parents confidence in the program
  • Ready to go devices – school information and required software are uploaded before the devices are delivered to the school, saving time and ensuring everyone has access to the set up they need from day one.
  • Quick repair and replacement of devices – so students always have a working device.
  • Dedicated portal – so parents can easily purchase devices and be confident that their child has the right device.
  • Support on hand – the school has a strong relationship with JB Hi-Fi Soulutions and accessing assistance is easy.
  • Expert advice on education products – so the range can be streamlined for parents and educators.
