BYOT stands for Bring Your Own Technology, and means students are able to use technology their family owns while at school. 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.Ashburn Elementary is one of many schools in Phase 2 of the county’s Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) initiative. AES began BYOT in April, 2016. With BYOT, students will connect their devices to our wireless network, and use them for academic purposes only. In the near future, BYOT will be in all LCPS schools.
Participating in BYOT is optional and should be a decision made by individual families. Students who do not bring devices will be provided with a device to use in the classroom, which ensures that all students will be able to participate.
