BYOT - Bring Your Own Technology

by: Karen Dean

What is byot

What is BYOT?

Bring your own technology programs, sometimes called bring your own device (BYOD), allow students to use their own devices, such as smart phones, ipods, ipads, tablets, etc., to aid learning and instruction in the classroom.

Voice recordings

Voice Recordings

Students can record themselves on their devices. This is a great resource if you don't have access to a foreign language lab.

Students speak the target language and replay it. They can replay it for themselves, partners, the whole class, or the teacher.

This can be done even if your school does not have Wi-Fi.

Qr codes

QR Codes

Quick Response (QR) codes are easy to use because all students need is a smart phone or ipod with a camera and a QR code reader app installed.

Ideas for qr codes

Ideas for QR codes

Link to a website - You can link any website, so students just scan the code to open the site.

Scavenger Hunt - Students scan the codes at each stop to get the next clue, location, etc.

Link to student projects – When you have students create prezis, vokis, etc., have them create a QR code so all students can quickly access the projects.

Recordings - Create a recording in the target

language. Students scan the QR code to hear

the recording.

Enhance assignments - Include QR codes on handouts or in power points so students can scan them to visit websites that offer further explanation, videos, practice activities, etc.

Interactive Bulletin Boards –Many different ways to use this. One example is to place QR codes next to pictures of artists so studetns can learn more about them and see their works of art.

Pinterest - Follow me!

I have several boards for education, BYOT, and foreign language. You can choose which boards you want to follow.

This is an excellent resource for teachers. Let other teachers do the research for you!

Live response polling

Live Response Polling – This is where I got my start with BYOT. Before we had WiFi, students texted in their response. The still love it!

This can be done even if your school does not have Wi-Fi.



Tired of grading papers? – this is a script that runs in Google drive. You create an assessment, the students type in their answers, and the program grades it for you!


Websites – grammar practice – create flashcards for your students - create games with your vocabulary or use games others have already made – advanced students listen to Spanish videos and complete activities – view trending articles in countries all over the world.
