Bring Your Own Device
Nagle College is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) School.
Technology is everywhere. It is entwined in almost every part of our daily lives. It affects how we live, work and most importantly how we learn. At Nagle we use Canvas, a digital learning management system, which works well with our BYOD program. Students are also able to access printers across the College from their own device.
We encourage parents to purchase their child their own device to help enhance their learning experience at Nagle College. Please ensure that the device used meets the minimum requirements to be connected to the school’s network.
