• Bring Your Own Device Program
      

    Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, refers to the School District’s program that allows students to use a personal electronic device for academic work as directed by a teacher.

    A wireless network at the High School and Middle School makes the program possible.

    Norwin High School students use iPads to study angles -- even angles made with arms outstretched -- in Mrs. Angela Knipple’s geometry classroom.

    It is driven by the belief that 21st Century learning requires school districts to provide real-world experiences for their students.

    Because modern smartphones are basically small computers, they can be used for education in many ways. Some potential uses include:

    ·        Connecting to the Internet for research and reference

    ·        Taking notes in class

    ·        Acting as a student response system (like a “clicker”) to respond
             to polls/quizzes
    in class

    ·        Running educational apps

    ·        Watching streaming educational videos

    ·        Recording vocabulary or foreign language dictation practice
