BYOT/D Classroom Use Guide

Main Goal
To increase student learning through the integration of
and the development of disciplined technology
(BYOT/D = Bring Your Own Technology/Device)

The use of personal devices in my classroom starts with the GUIDED MODEL of device use and hopefully progresses to the PERSONAL USE MODEL by the end of the year.
(source- http://techtoolsforschools.blogspot.com/2011/11/classroom-management-models-of-byod.html

That is, personal devices can be used when intructed by teacher only. The goal is that each student by the end of the year will not need to be micromanaged by the instructor on when it is a good time/bad time to use their device for ACADEMIC PURPOSES.
The goal is to help students build a disciplined approach to technology use, while they are learning content. This leads to the development of a healthy and balanced life.

When to use your personal device will be indicated to you by our BLUE LIGHT. When light is on, devices can be used for academic purposes.
When light is OFF, devices are to be face down on desk.

2) Examples of academic use include:
-noting due dates on calendar/reminders
-accessing class website & useful apps
-access to the internet for research
-camera/video features for projects
-collection of feedback/student data)

3) Consequences of using device when blue light off: - warning, - call home, - conference, - 2 hour detention, - not being able to use the device for a set period of time, -referral

4) All SCPS school BYOT/D policies will also be followed:

Class Discussions
on the balance of technology in our lives in relation to:
-work force
-family time

Ease of Use:
5 (1-5 scale, 5 being the easiest)
Sign-up Ease:

Overall a quick easy program for students to use for vocabulary review. Students don't even have to sign-up if they use Public Quizlets that have already been made. The vocabulary can be practiced in 6 different ways. One of my favorite ways is via "Space Race" where students can compete against each other!

How It May Be Used:
I will make a Quizlet that the students can work with.
2) Students will create their own Quizlets as their own form of personal study.
3) Print Quizzes from Quizlet. The students can then practice with the Quizlet to prepare them for vocabulary quizzes.


Ease of Use
: 5
Sign-up Ease:
4 (teacher), 5 (student, no sign-up required to participate in polls)

No sign-up required for students, they just text in their answers or send them in via web browser and it works! Teachers sign-up and can save questions, group them according to categories, and record results. From my research it sounds like you can see their postings before it goes public if you use their PollEv app. However, it is great for multiple choice and T/F questions.

How It May Be Used:
1) Reviewing for Quizzes/Tests...gives teacher feedback on what more needs to be reviewed.
2) Students that do not have devices can group with someone that does.
3) Check for background knowledge at the beginning of a unit or topic.

Sign-up Ease:

Is a great way to organize all of your classes! You can scan pictures, documents, anything directly into Evernote. Easiest use of this web-based software is for taking and recording notes for classes/meetings. Also, have the ability to share notebooks and have access to the Teacher's shared notebook.

How It May Be Used:
1) For organizing notes/digital materials for all of a student's classes.
2) Can take pictures of notes on a whiteboard, a lab experiment/results, or a project and store it in Evernote.
3) Easily record websites for research projects.
4) For student collaboration.
5) Turning in assignments.
6) For the teacher... posting audio notes, pictures of whiteboard notes covered in class, absentee work, shared notebook for student access, lesson plans, and sharing documents.
7) Overall, it is a student planner for keeping track of due dates, class work, research projects, and extracurricular activities.

How It Works

Ease of Use
: 3-4
Sign-up Ease:
4 (FREE)

Great way to present information in a "big picture" format versus in a linear form such as Microsoft PowerPoint. There is a little learning curve in creating Prezi presentations. I think especially for those that have been using mainly PowerPoint. But, you can easily present documents, videos, add music, and continually zoom-in and out, to make sure your audience is understanding the overall "big picture." Also, students can create Prezumes and Portfolios of work using Prezi, then other students can comment and review.

How It May Be Used For Communicating/Collaborating:
1) For group presentations, up to 10 students can be working on the presentation at the same time ("real time")
2) Students can watch and comment/review other student's Prezi's
3) Can be created by students to communicate lab results, presentation of material, create their resume, create a portfolio of work that they have completed.
4) Teacher can use it to illustrate how concept maps are created and large quantities of information can be organized.
5) Students can also use it to take notes on the canvas. Then organize the notes from multiple lessons in a way that visually makes sense to them.

(also is what your using right now...)
Ease of Use
: 5 (Citation Tool)
Sign-up Ease:
Website: www.easybib.com

Most students do not sign-up for EasyBib, they just create the citation then copy/paste it into their paper or project. It is super easy to use and makes citing sources faster, more accurate, and easier. If you officially sign-up, then you can save all of your citations in bibliography form. EasyBib offers 2 tools: Citation Tool (FREE) and the Virtual Notebook ($25). The Citation Tool is what most people use. The Virtual Notebook does look very useful for putting together research papers, as it allows you to make virtual note cards of sources and keeps track of the sources. It also allows you to create an outline for the research paper and then you can drag the note cards/sources into the outline to organize your paper. Many colleges have an EasyBib subscription that allows their students to use both tools for free.

How It May Be Used for Content and Problem Solving:
1) Mainly as a means to help prevent plagiarism and help the students cite sources in their projects and papers.
2) EasyBib helps me as a teacher spend less time going over how to cite sources and more time on the class content.

How It Works

Ease of Use:
Sign-Up Ease:

You do not even have to log-in or sign-up! Very easy and quick to use. In less than 2 minutes you can have a QR code made and linked to a document, website, or video. The QR code can be downloaded or printed for your use.

How It Can Be Used for Content/Problem Solving:
1) STATION ACTIVITIES- students are in groups and rotate to different stations after 5-8 minutes. At these stations there is a QR Code printed that sends them automatically to a content related video, website, or a document or quiz (via polleverywhere.com).

2) TREASURE HUNTS- Post QR codes around room for content related activities or for review of lab safety at the beginning of the year (can post near safety equipment locations, exits, lab tools, etc).

3) VIDEO DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO USE VARIOUS LAB EQUIPMENT- QR Codes that take students to manufacturers' videos or other videos that explain how to use the equipment. Can be used for chemical test kits, refractometers, electronic scales, triple-beam balances, hydrometers, aquarium pumps/filters, Vernier lab quests and probes, microscopes, and a host of other equipment.

Sign-up Ease:

Easy way to create very professional looking timelines with pictures, video, awesome backgrounds, and much more. Can have multiple users working on the same timeline, especially if it is a group project.

How It May Be Used As a Presentation & Sharing Tool:
1) Teacher could use it in a lesson to present a historical approach in a media rich form.
2) Students can use it in my class to make interactive timelines of:
- scientific discoveries and how they were built on each other
- history of Oceanography
- timeline of famous scientists
_ Evolutionary timeline

Sign-up Ease:

Once you are signed-up you have access do Google Drive, which allows you to use all the other Google Docs items. Great way to COLLABORATE on presentations. If working as a group, you can see which slide your other group members are working on and what they are editing. Once it is shared or presented, you can also read other people's comments on your presentation. Works very similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, except FREE! Not sure if it can be used on mobile devices. But, it is saved in the cloud, so even if you switch devices or locations, you can have access to your presentation.

How It May Be Used:
1) For student presentations...INDIVIDUAL and GROUP presentations. Students would have to comment on other student's presentations. And groups would have to collaborate outside of class time on completing the presentation.
2) As the teacher, I would use this also, and also share my Presentations with the rest of class. That way have access to my documents also for review.
