Bring Your Own Technology
In 2015, Loudoun County Public Schools began implementing BYOT, Bring Your Own Technology, 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.
The Why of BYOT
Loudoun County Public Schools believes that it is important for our students to learn how to use all of their devices responsibly in addition to engaging in Deeper Learning Experiences during the school day. By students using their own devices, they are learning to be collaborators, critical thinkers, contributors, communicators, and be creative.
