Why byod in schools

Why BYOD in Schools?

  • to increase motivation and engagement in the classroom

  • to help provide access to a wide variety of resources that support differentiated instruction efforts

  • to help provide increased student access to school provided e-books, e-textbooks, and Moodle units

  • to provide the means for online collaborative work in the classroom

  • to develop workable rules and standards for classroom teachers to help manage student-owned technologies

    From Doug Johnson article

More opinions of why byod

More Opinions of Why BYOD

  • to get closer to 1 to 1 computing

  • to utilize in school the technology that the teen digital natives already use all the time

  • to teach the students to use their cell phones for more than tweeting and texting

  • to utilize mobile apps when labs or library computers were not available

  • to release principals from being cell phone police to do more important work

  • to engage staff in newer technologies

Principal Bruce Orr of LHS says use of cell phones at school is a privilege not a right and can be revoked at any time if we use a pilot and don’t change school board policy. He said fighting cell use is like Custer’s Last Stand. It is a no win situation.

Does this have anything to do with literacy

Does this have anything to do with literacy?

  • Do our school rules and policies help students take advantage of their mobile computing devices?

  • Can students and staff get knowledgeable support from my tech staff when they have cell or ipadproblems?

  • Are teachers selecting resources with mobile computing devices in mind?

  • In each teacher’s role as instructional leader, is he/she using best practices that take advantage of a ubiquitous technology environment?

  • Do I—as an educator--- exemplify a learner who takes advantage of having continuous access to my Professional Learning Network and to the world's information?

  • Students are responsible for conducting themselves in a manner that respects the rights of others. Possession and use of any electronic device, whether district or student owned, that interferes with a positive, orderly classroom environment does not respect the rights of others and is expressly forbidden.

  • As used in this policy, “electronic devices” means anything that can be used to transmit or capture images, sound, or data. 

  • Misuse of electronic devices includes, but is not limited to:

  • Using electronic devices during class time in any manner other than specifically permitted by the classroom instructor;

  • Permitting any audible sound to come from the device when not being used for reason #1 above;

  • Engaging in academic dishonesty, including cheating, intentionally plagiarizing, wrongfully giving or receiving help during an academic examination, or wrongfully obtaining test copies or scores;

  • Using the device to take photographs in locker rooms or bathrooms;

  • Creating, sending, sharing, viewing, receiving, or possessing an indecent visual depiction of oneself or another person.

  • Use of an electronic device is permitted to the extent it is approved in a student’s individualized education program (IEP) or it is needed in an emergency that threatens the safety of students, staff, or other individuals.

  • Before and after normal school hours, possession of electronic devices is permitted on the school campus. The use of such devices at school sponsored functions outside the regular school day is permitted to the extent and within the limitations allowed by the event or activity the student is attending.

  • The student and/or the student’s parents or guardians expressly assume any risk associated with students owning or possessing electronic devices. Students misusing electronic devices shall have them confiscated. Confiscated devices may be picked up at the school’s administration office by the student’s parents or guardians.1Students have no right of privacy as to the content contained on any electronic devices that have been confiscated.2

  • Students who use a school issued cell phones and/or computers for non-school purposes, except as permitted by the district’s Internet/computer use policy, shall be subject to discipline, up to and including suspension or expulsion. Students are forbidden from using school issued cell phones while driving any vehicle at any time. Violation may result in disciplinary action up to and including expulsion.23

  • Notes: As districts move toward one-to-one computing and other options for integrating technology into classroom instruction and student learning, ASBA advises that in changing this policy (or any other locally generated policy), districts be mindful of the potential concerns relating to equitable access to the technology. When classroom instruction involves technology devices, it is important to make sure all students have reasonably the same access and are not hampered by their socio-economic status. Permitting or requiring students who own laptops, iPads or any other such device to use them as part of the instructional/learning environment without providing similar devices to those who don’t own or have access to such devices is unfair to those students.

  • 1 ASBA suggests adding another sentence that specifies the increasing severity of the penalty for repeat offenders. 

  • 2 To perform a search of an electronic device, an administratorwould have to possess individualized suspicion that an examination of the device would reveal evidence of student misconduct, and the search itself would have to be tailored to the suspicion.  For instance, if there were an allegation that harassing text messages had been sent from Student A to Student B during lunch, individualized suspicion would exist as to the textmessage history contained on Student A’s phone.  However, viewing pictures or files unrelated to the suspected misconduct would be inappropriate and aviolation of the student’s rights under the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution. Merely confiscating a cell phone because the student received a call on it, does not give individualized suspicion to justify a search.

  • 23 This sentence is included because insurance companies have ruled that injuries occurring while driving and talking on school issued cell phones are subject to workers comp awards.

Aup changes process

AUP Changes: Process

In handbooks for parents to sign off on

Have to be approved by school board to change policy

We decided on a pilot before going to school board to change forever—like a trial period

We took a government produced ‘sample’ AUP for new media and customized it to meet our needs

We looked at policies across the state



Some staff still staunchly won’t allow cells or MP3 players in the classroom---this is teacher by teacher by our policy

Some teachers say it makes the kids without devices feel left out; too much cheating will take place

Running out of IP numbers- major problem this year by end of first nine weeks

Setting up separate wifi access points for nonschool devices Or not

What to do about 3G student devices

Defining areas for BYOD and times for BYOD

Separating cell use from other devices in BYOD policy- some schools do not separate- we don’t allow laptops from home on our network

Sample policies where to begin

Sample policies: Where to begin (this is the one we modified but ASBA recs look real good for a starting point)

How many students are bringing devices

How many students arebringing devices?

We have 650 students in 10th to 12th grade

We have 60 signed policies filed but many have unregistered 3G

Most with 3G devices choose not to sign the contract because of filtering; we do not deny them use of their device whether cell or tablet with 3G

They may bring laptops but not connect to our wifi

I do have to manually take the time to configure each device and have them sign the contract

Our pilot aup 2011 2012

Our Pilot AUP 2011-2012

Things we have changed:

Instead of taking cell phones out, we left them in

Added page for parent and student signature (UNLESS 18)

Added line for Mac Address and type of device

Made sure the contract shows the school is not liable for lost or stolen devices (this problem is why middle school and jr high would not buy in to this new policy for their age groups)

Consequences are not a biggie; they still follow the handbook for violations.

Next year we may switch to ASBA AUP bc more generic then take it to the School Board and put in handbook—committee hasn’t met yet and 9th grade teachers are wanting to give kids access to cell phones only in specific classrooms
