What is Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT)?
Loudoun County Public Schools is implementing a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) initiative, which encourages students to bring their personal technology tools to school for learning. As students utilize their personal technology devices in school, they can learn new ways to use them for collaborating and interacting with their teachers and each other to research information, solve complex problems, create original products, and publish their work. BYOT supports One to the World.
Park View is taking part in the county’s Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) program with the start of the 2015-16 school year. Students who have submitted their signed Acceptable Use Policy, may, at the discretion of their classroom teachers, use their own technology for academic purposes in the classroom. Students may connect their devices to the LCPS Open wireless network, and use them for academic purposes.
Although any device will be helpful, devices which allow the student to create content (Netbooks, Chromebooks, laptops, tablets) and which have a keyboard are best suited, and often less expensive than devices designed for consumption (cell phones), but both types of device are acceptable.
