2 What is BYOD? BYOD is an acronym for Bring Your Own Device. A “device” is defined as a privately owned laptop, tablet computing device, netbook, notebook, e-Reader, iPod Touch, iPad, or smartphone.For this program, “device” also includes any similar product owned by CCPS and provided for student use.This page addresses the definition of BYOD as it applies in CCPS.
3 Why BYOD?Our students are digital natives and live in a world where information creation and consumption is constantly occurring.We feel that access to the tools and resources of a world-wide network and understanding when and how these tools are appropriately and effectively used are imperative in each student’s education.We envision a learning environment where technology is a part of us, not apart from us.This page addresses the rationale for implementing BYOD in CCPS.
