Wodonga Middle Years College aims to empower students to fully engage in a 21st Century learning environment. The college is committed to every student having access to a modern notebook computer. As we move toward the future, Students need modern skills such as research, typing and coding; but also require legacy skills such as handwriting. As such our recommended notebook option includes a 2 in 1 touch screen and an active stylus pen to provide grater natural interaction with our digital learning programs.
We have partnered with Learning with Technology to provide Notebook Purchase portal for all students attending Wodonga Middle Years College in 2023. Through this partnership we have negotiated prices and formed an endorsed list of BYOD devices to suit our curriculum.

Wodonga Middle Years College will pride itself on technology innovation and have already begun to modernise the presentation of our curriculum. This relies heavily on students having access to a modern notebook computer.
