What is BYOD?
Transcript of What is BYOD?
Parent Information Session
Personalised learning through access to rich learning resources
Give students’ greater choice and more independence
Develops skills and knowledge necessary for a 21st Century workforce
Allows access to educational materials allowing learning efficiency to happen anywhere, anytime
Provides an engaging, interactive learning environment
Smooth transition between home and school
Provides easier student access to online instructional materials
Supplements school resources and equipment
Normalisation of technology
The Australian Curriculum is supported through C2C, with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy development.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capabilities are an integral aspect to both.
ICT elements within the Australian Curriculum are organised into 5 interrelated elements:
Applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT
Investigating with ICT
Creating with ICT
Communicating with ICT
Managing and operating ICT
BYOD MeLearning Proposal
As a trial implementation program 2 classes are suggested for 2014
Year 2 class using an iPad
Year 4 class using a Windows 8 device
This proposal, during and following the trial phase, will remain flexible to allow for any necessary changes as situations, expectations and technology innovations arise.
Increase student engagement
Enable anywhere, anytime continuous learning
Allow new forms of assessment
Model the real world
Connect students to a global world
Positive impact on student learning
Schoolwide ICT access
Manly State School will continue to maintain student / computer ratios and provide all students equitable access to ICTs.
Laptop bank (upper school and 'B' block)
Class digital cameras and other devices
The iPad will be integrated into the early years classrooms.
The iPad allows for flexible, content based learning opportunities using a visual and engaging interface.
“In the Early Years the iPad was invaluable and a fabulous tool to engage and enrich children’s learning.” (Education Today, The school principals' magazine, Term 2, 2013, Vol13 (2))
Constructivism is a theory of education that encompasses both cognitive and social elements. The essence being that learners actively construct their own knowledge and meaning from their experiences. This approach is widely embraced when considering the integration of ICT into teaching and learning.
At Manly SS we incorporate High Impact Instruction based on Jim Knight's Big Four into our Pedagogical Framework. Integration of BYO devices is a neat fit for us.
Meet the requirements of the Australian National Curriculum
Progress the relevant initiatives into teaching and learning.
Children and staff have relevant and meaningful experiences using ICT.
ICT is used to support the thinking processes of:
presenting across the curriculum.
Manly ICT Vision
To provide students with a digitally rich 21st Century learning environment that is forward thinking and innovative, and allows them to inquire, analyse, communicate and create within a personalised learning program.
To provide best practice teaching that enables, enhances and transforms student learning and outcomes through ICT.
What is BYOD?
BYOD stands for “Bring Your Own Device.”
BYOD is an initiative that will allow students who have personal technology devices to bring them to school to use them for educational purposes to meet their learning needs under the direction of a teacher or administrator.
Windows 8 Device
This style of device allows students a familiar interface, provides opportunities to purposefully access areas of the curriculum, to research, to publish, and to present their work in a variety of formats.
This can be an iPad 2 or iPad 3
Minimum 16GB storage
Parents will be asked to pre-load some content based apps prior to bringing the device to school for the first time.
It is anticipated that further apps will be required and requested throughout the year.
For the trial commencement in 2014, Manly SS is not specifying any particular device/brand to be purchased, only that the device meets set minimum specifications. This minimum standard will be reviewed and updated annually to reflect the fast-paced nature of technological change.
•Operating System – Windows 8 Pro or Home
•Microsoft Office installed
•student version is acceptable but Publisher not a part of the suite
•Online version not acceptable as it may cause issues with the proxy server, create delays and use up bandwidth unnecessarily
•Hard Drive – 64 GB or more
•Battery life –minimum of 6 hrs
Classes will be carefully formed from across the year level
Final selection of students will be made to ensure an equitable distribution of students (i.e. student academic achievement and behaviour records)
Not necessarily 'first in'
Personally owned devices are brought to school fully charged.
Required apps or programs installed
Devices backed-up regularly
Students comply fully with all aspects of the Participation Agreement
Students are responsible for the transportation and care of device
3G connection will not be allowed and parents will have to remove or password protect their 3G connection so students do NOT access this unfiltered network whilst at school.
Care of device
Warranty and support
Connectivity / School Infrastructure
WiFi capability of school
future projections and planning
Working Safely and Responsibly
It is essential that teachers incorporate safe and responsible online behaviours as part of any lesson using the internet and 1-to-1 devices
Students need to be aware of:
Protecting their own privacy and personal information
Selecting appropriate spaces (kid friendly and vetted)
Protecting the privacy of others
Being proactive in letting someone know if there is something not quite right.
Applications / Expressions of Interest
An open invitation will be extended to all students within the relevant year levels to apply to participate in the trial.
Applications would be made through an Expression of Interest form.
To reiterate - final selection of students will be made to ensure an equitable distribution of students across the classes (i.e. student academic achievement and behaviour records)
The amount of time a student spends on a device will depend on the lesson intent and objective.
Students will not be using the device 100% of the day.
Research / Teacher Comments
“Having tablets flat on the desktop so that I could see what I was looking at was a plus for the iPads/tablet, as was the immediate access compared to the time wasted starting and switching off laptops.”
“The iPads/tablets were ideal for group activities for reading, very handy for student’s extension work and a good tool for students who are reluctant to do extra work or students who are a little behind.”
“The iPads/tablets were highly engaging and beneficial. They have been easy to implement in all curriculum areas … students found them highly intuitive which enabled the learning outcomes to be maximised.”
Security of device
Devices will be the responsibility of the student. The school will accept no responsibility for the security or safety of the device. Devices will be stored in classrooms during class time and at break time.
If Students are ...
Using their voice
Presenting and sharing ideas
Then the digital device is a powerful learning tool!
