Transcript of The Road Ahead

What is BYOD?
BYOD stands for

Sycamore Creek Elementary School was a pilot school in Wake County initiated a BYOD learning environment.

For the 2015-2016 school year all students, teachers, parents and administrators will work together to create the type of environments that provide students opportunities to enhance
skills through
with peers. We're looking forward to seeing
blossom as students develop stronger
skills through engaging and challenging projects that will require the use of 21st century skills.
It's not about the devices themselves, it's about embracing them as a tool for enhancing the great instructional practices already taking place.
What Will BYOD Look Like At Sycamore Creek?
This 2015-2016 school year Sycamore Creek, for the first time, will give all teachers the opportunity to make their classroom a BYOD classroom. Students in these classrooms would be allowed to bring their personal technology devices (laptops, smart phones, Nooks, tablets, iPads, etc.) into the classroom. These devices are to be used at the discretion of individual teachers to enhance lessons and learning. Teachers will incorporate devices at appropriate points within their lessons to build ideas, enlist creativity, grant quick access to information, and allow students Internet access to develop knowledge and collaboration in the classroom.
