Myth About BYOT
Levels of Implementation
Tools and Examples
Sharing and Questions
What devices are currently in your students' book bag or might they bring to your classroom?
Sample Ticket Out the Door
List any devices you currently have with you in class today that could be used for learning. For example, cell phone, smart phone, mp3 player, tablet, e-reader, laptop, etc...
List any devices you do not bring daily but if you had a special project you could bring to school.
"It's not so much that we're afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it's that place in between that we fear...It's like being between trapezes. It's Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There's nothing to hold on to."
After you know which tools are available the next step is to decide how you will allow students to use the devices.
You DO NOT need to know all the answers.
Students should troubleshoot for themselves
You determine how long or if they are able to troubleshoot.
Most Common Myth about BYOT
Teachers must be an expert in all the technology students may bring with them to school.
Remember as a teacher
you are in Charge of Your Classroom with BYOT.
You decide when students may or may not use their devices for learning.
Levels of BYOT Classroom Implementation
Level 0 - Perpetual Power Down Mode
The teacher does not permit any students to use any personal device in the classroom.
Teacher Grants Permission to Use Devices
The teacher permits students to use their devices for learning but without any specific instructions in how the devices may be used.
Students may choose to use their devices for personal organization. Some examples may include note taking, placing important dates on calendar, and sending text or email reminders.
Teacher Encourage Use of Devices
In addition to using the device for organization the teacher encourages students to use their device in specific ways.
For example a student may be encouraged to use their device as a calculator, dictionary, or thesaurus. The student may also may be encouraged to use the device to complete internet searches, visit a specific websites, watch a video, or to take pictures of examples they may use to study.
Students Use Device to Complete a Task
The teacher specifically provides task in which the student uses their device to complete. The teacher may ask students to use their device as a student response system. Some tools they may choose to use could include Poll Everywhere, Socrative, Infuse Learning, and Mentimeter. The teacher may also ask students to submit assignments to them digitally. The teacher may choose to have assignment sent to them via email, text, blog post, or through a course management system such as Moodle or Edmodo.
Students Use Tools to Create
A. Students Choose
In this level students use digital tools to create products and presentations. The teacher provides the task/rubric but the student must choose the tool he or she would like to use to complete the task. Some tools students may use could include Prezi, Glogster Edu, Google Drive, and Voki.
Level 5 - Seamless BYOT Integration
There is no longer a division of instruction and technology in the classroom. The classroom runs smoothly without any forced use of technology. Daily seamless integration of technology throughout all classroom activities.
Level 2 Examples
Research - Wolfram Alpha
Watch a Video
Take Pictures or Video
Typed, Pictorial, or Audio
Google Drive https://drive.google.com
Skitch (app for Android and iOs)
Send text or voicemail reminders
Visit a Website for Practice
B. Students Collaborate
The teacher provides task that encourage collaboration. Students use digital tools to collaborate with each other or with experts outside of the classroom to complete a task.
