BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

December 15, 2017

BYOD is a divisional technology initiative whereby teachers are actively pursuing and refining ways to integrate student supplied technologies into the curricula they teach. Although on the surface it looks simply like allowing the use of cellphones in classrooms, at its heart, it is intended to be a way for teachers to introduce topics and ideas while infusing 21st century technology skills with their students. Different teachers will approach this initiative differently due to the unique nature of the courses they teach. We’ve provided some background documents to share some of the expectations and clarify some of the common questions that students and/or parents may have regarding this initiative and its potential impact on student learning in the classroom. Should you have any further questions regarding BYOD or the learning that’s happening at the school, please don’t hesitate to ask your child’s teacher(s).
