Transcript of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) - Principals

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Encouraging Personal Devices in the Hayfield Pyramid Hayfield Pyramid BYOD Policy (overview)

• FCPS docs used by other schools have been tweaked to fit the Hayfield Pyramid (elementary)
• Focus is on use of devices for Instructional Mission, personal devices will only be used for instructional purposes
• Does not exclude device type (laptop, tablet, ereader, smartphone), but does restrict use/purpose
• Texting, phone calls, and other personal communications are prohibited during school hours
• Areas of prohibited use include bathrooms, cafeteria, and recess
• Strict adherence to AUP required
• Appropriate time/purpose of device use at the discretion of the teacher
• All devices must be registered at school; registration includes signed FCPS student/parent form and sticker
• Use of device restricted to owner of device (no sharing)
• Owner of device is responsible for maintenance, charging, configuration, and troubleshooting of device
• Student devices will only be connected to FCPS Mobile connection, not personal data plan, during school hours
• Privilege can be revoked by school any time for violations of policy Ubiquity of Devices World population = 7 billion; Cell phone subscriptions = 5 billion
Of 5 billion cell phone plans worldwide, 30% are smart phones
Study in UK found children ages 7 – 16 more likely to own a cell phone than a book
40% of kids age 12 – 17 in US have a smart phone
11% of US population has a tablet computer
1 out of every 8 people on the planet has a Facebook page (didn’t exist in 2004)
69% of US high schools ban mobile devices; in those schools 63% of students say they use them anyway; 47% report being able to text with their eyes closed
67% of parents said they would purchase mobile devices for their children to use in school
66% support use of online textbooks Kids Learn Differently Today Information at their fingertips
Information is current and linked
Multimedia world
Prioritize visual learning
Learn through trial and error, learn by experience
Constantly connect and collaborate It's Not About the Technology! (it's what you do with it) All technology is merely a tool to support the instructional mission
4 C’s (Communicate, Collaborate, Create, Think Critically) What does BYOD bring to the table? More access, more consistency (not necessary to reserve devices, same device connects at school and at home)
Improved school finances (burden of cost is on parents)
Hardware/software more current and reliable (no aging machines, software licenses)
Device is personalized (student is knowledgeable of maintenance, operation, and capabilites – hardware & software)
Better care and more responsible use (care more for their own property)
Better connected (students take better advantage of physical and virtual learning spaces, including Blackboard, Google Apps)
Learning with BYOD becomes more student-centered, experiential, multimedia, creative
School relinquishes control of device maintenance, NOT control of technology use Concerns Control: what do we give up, what do we keep? (we give up maintenance, repair, troubleshooting, which specific software to use; we control when and where it is used)
Haves/Have Nots (personal devices are not required, but merely ALLOWED)
Liability (FCPS has no more liability for personal devices than any other personal property)
Which devices? (FCPS allows all; all can do pretty much the same thing, limiting device type may impact families negatively)
Everyone? Or start small? (how many do you think you'll get?)
Training? (let it bubble up, teachers can restrict when/how devices will be used according to their comfort level; those who are innovators/risk takers will share their successes) http://www.slideshare.net/samgliksman/building-an-effective-school-byod-plan Glicksman PowerPoint BYOD in the 21st Century Video Additional Resources
