Bring Your Own Device - BYODSoutheast Raleigh Magnet High School is excited to announce that we have been asked to serve in the second cohort of the WCPSS Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative. This initiative will promote our magnet theme of technology and leadership, while maximizing hands-on integration of technology into our classrooms. Allowing students to use their own smartphones, tablets, and laptops in class for specific tasks enables them to access the newest technology without a costly burden on stretched school budgets for purchase and maintenance.
Our students live in a fast-paced, high-tech, global environment where almost everything is on-demand and at their fingertips. They have never known life without the Internet, and they are quite savvy at connecting, collaborating, creating, and sharing online content with others. It makes sense to meet them where they are and use these strengths to promote their learning on devices with which they are already familiar. Through careful planning, communication, feedback, and evaluation by teachers, students, and parents, we hope to prepare our students for life outside the classroom as independent learners in careers that require new skills for constantly changing work environments. Through the implementation of this initiative, our students will be able to demonstrate the application of digital citizenship.
