Bring Your Own Device
. and why is Coweta County piloting a program?
What is BYOD ?
Ever since its inception, school systems around the country have been searching for ways to equip their students with access to the Internet. The 1:1 Computing Initiative was first introduced in the mid-1990s in an effort to provide each student with a computer to support academic learning.
BYOD and the
1:1 Computer Initiative
School systems all over the country are exploring the possibilities with BYOT/BYOD
BYOD Pilot Programs:
What Have We Learned?
What steps should a teacher take to ensure that they have a successful BYOD experience?
What are some concerns as we move forward?
Concerns and Obstacles
Our current students have grown up in the digital age. They are the natives and we re the immigrants. Most of our students use technology the way we used pencils and paper when we were their age
A concept where students bring in their own means to access the school system’s Wi-Fi network.
Until the BYOD program, students were forbidden from using their own devices in the Coweta County School System.
So why has Coweta County Schools changed this policy?
It has become increasingly more difficult for a school system to maintain working computers and laptops for student use.
So with BYOD the school system is not involved in training the students on the use of technology and the school system is not responsible for maintaining the devices the students are using.
It allows the school system to reach the ever elusive 1:1 computer initiative without the cost of buying new equipment. The students come to school with a device that they are already comfortable using which allows the teacher to focus on the curriculum.
Now the emphasis of the school system should be to ensure there is enough Wi-Fi bandwidth to accommodate each student as the 1:1 Computer Initiative is being realized.
The number of students that have access to a Wi-Fi capable device is on the increase and it is time to rethink the 1:1 Computer Initiative. Schools systems no longer need to provide the technology devices. The students already have them and know how to use them
Students spend more time doing schoolwork on mobile devices than they would with paper and pencil because it’s an affirmation of who they are and it’s readily available.
. keys to BYOD success is that there are clear rules and regulations as to when and how students can use their technology. This fosters responsible usage.
The technology “device” is like a text book and is accessed when needed. As in the past when a teacher may have said, “Okay students, get out your text book and open to page 93.” The BYOD teacher will say, “Okay class, get out your device and find a biome.
Once the students retrieve the information, the device is put away and the teacher continues with the lesson. This clear understanding of when and how the device is used maintains control and allows the program to be successful.
Step 1: Determine students that will bring a device and make provisions for those that will not
Step 2: Have students watch Internet safety video and read and sign the BYOD Responsible Use Agreement. Post these rules in the classroom for a visual reminder.
Step 3: Introduce a short, simple activity. this will test the connectivity of the system as well as that of the student s devices.
Step 4: Create Edmodo account and organize students into groups.
Step 5: Always have a backup plan!
The number of wireless users on our network will increase from just over one hundred to well over a thousand. We need to make sure that we have enough bandwidth for the BYOD wireless network.
Not everyone is sold on the BYOD concept. There are concerns it will lead to broadening the gap in the “digital divide”, the divide between those with access to new technologies and those without, which is now one of America’s leading economic and civil rights issues.
“How can a teacher make sure that the students are not doing the wrong thing?” This is a common thought of the skeptics.
back in high school a couple of my classmates would have a Mad magazine placed in the middle of their text book. While most were reading Newton’s laws of motion, these two would be reading Alfred E. Newman’s latest escapades.
I don’t think there ever was the thought to “ban the textbooks” because the students might use them inappropriately. Neither should we ban the use of technology because a few will use it incorrectly.
My oldest son participated in a group study session. Met at Starbucks for the Wifi, not the coffee. He took with him a Kindle and an Apple iTouch. They read the book on the Kindle, discussed the questions, took notes on the iTouch, and emailed them to his e-mail account. At home he used Microsoft Word to formally type up his responses and submitted them to the teacher electronically.
This approach of using the various technologies for studying, researching, note taking, summarizing and collaboration was not taught to him by anyone I know, it just came natural from growing up in the digital age.
The BYOD program will help our students become comfortable and proficient with the tools they will need to be successful in the future, whether at college or in the workplace.
