Bring Your Own Technology
Beginning in 2015, Loudoun County Public Schools will implement Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT), which encourages students to bring their personal technology tools to school for learning as needed by the lessons in class. 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.
BYOT will be introduced to LCPS students in phases. During the second semester of the 2014-15 school year, select schools began to implement BYOT. The program will be expanded to include additional schools at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. Newton-Lee is beginning to implement the program in 2016 through several classrooms across many grade levels. The new AUP (below) will be required for all students and parents to sign once NLE becomes a fully participating BYOT school for the 2016-17 school year.
