Transcript of Bring Your Own Device Proposal

Overview of School
Executive Summary
Needs & Improvements
Executive Summary:
Private Schools: 20 schools in Irving, TX serving 2710 students
Student to teacher ratio at SGCA: 7:1
90% of SGCA graduates matriculate to college (past 10 years)
Founded in 1975
SGCA can begin integration of technology into curriculum by instituting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy
Students without their own device should be provided with comparable device to use at school in order to ensure all students have equal access to instruction and participation
SGCA will create a technology team, perform a needs assessment, and create a technology plan to present to funding organization/s to provide iPad minis and professional development for all upper school faculty
Needs and Proposed Improvements
To create a technology-friendly environment which connects students’ digital lives outside of school with that of the educational environment
Students will be allowed to bring designated personal digital devices to school for educational purposes and allowed to use within the classroom at specific times designated by individual teachers

SGCA- 119 students (2013-2014) =
4.3% of Irving private school enrollment

Proper use of BYOD can "enhance learning in the classroom when deemed appropriate at individual teacher discretion" (Frisco Independent School District, 2011-2012)
Create Technology Team to research benefits/challenges
Survey parents and students
Research BYOD policies at area schools, public and private
Determine best use of personal digital devices for classroom application and which devices to include
Assure equal access for all students
Examine existing infrastructure and identify areas of improvement (ex. school network bandwidth)
Conduct cost analysis
Submit grant proposal/application to chosen funding institution/s
How Do We Start?
Goal of BYOD
School will implement a BYOD program and policy and ensure every student is able to participate
A BYOD program can allow SGCA to begin implementing educational technology into the classrooms at very little cost. However, without proper training of teachers on the use of each approved device and applications which will be used in class, BYOD will likely lose its value (Chadband, 2012).

Why Change the Policy?
As stated by Robert Gray Middle School (2014) in Portland Oregon, BYOD "seeks to strategically incorporate technology into academics, social-emotional development, positive behavior management" (www.pps.k12.or.us/schools/gray/751.htm)
