What is BYOD, and how does the program work?
BYOD means "Bring Your Own Device." Instead of the school providing devices, or instead of mandating one particular device, we are requiring every student to bring the device of their choice (provided it meets some basic requirements). Each teacher may have students use the devices differently. Some teachers may have students do research in class, some may have them take assessments, some may have them do writing assignments, some may use it to access online resources. Some teachers may give activities that require students to use their devices constantly. Other teachers may not utilize the BYOD program as often but leave it up to the student whether or not they use their device to take notes or access an e-book.
While having every student bring their own device opens a world of curriculum possibilities, we also believe in creating an environment where students have a choice to turn in homework digitally, have e-books instead of textbooks, and take notes electronically. To the right you will see a list of frequently asked questions and our BYOD Buying Guide.
