What does BYOD look like?The BYOD initiative at Underwood will begin small and involve a class at Kindergarten, Third and Fifth grades, as well as Dance. Teachers, parents and administrators will be working together to create the type of environment that will allow students to enhance critical thinking skills through collaboration with peers. We're looking forward to seeing creativity blossom as students develop stronger communication skills through engaging and challenging projects that will require the use of 21st century skills. It's not about the devices themselves, it's about embracing them as a tool for enhancing the great instructional practices already taking place.
These devices are to be used at the discretion of individual teachers to enhance lessons and learning. Teachers will incorporate devices at appropriate points within their lessons to build ideas, enlist creativity, grant quick access to information, and allow students Internet access to develop knowledge and collaboration in the classroom.
