Details About BYOD
The BYOD initiative at Lufkin Road Middle School involves parents, students, teachers, and administrators working together to create a technologically advanced learning environment. Students will be allowed to bring their own technology devices (smart phones, Nooks, tablets, iPads, etc.) into the classroom for instructional purposes. These devices are to be used at the discretion of individual teachers, media specialists, and administrators to enhance lessons and learning while at Lufkin Road Middle.
Teachers will incorporate devices at appropriate points within their lessons to enable students to think critically, visibly, and globally in the classroom.Students will have access to a personal WCPSS issued Google Apps Accounts that align with the BYOD program. Student Google accounts will allow for access to Google applications except for Gmail. Teachers will suggest other educational applications for students to download at home for classroom use. B.Y.O.D. will grant students the privilege to use their devices in the classroom; however, this is a choice program.
Students are not required to bring devices to school and will be provided opportunities to work with school-owned technology if they do not have a personal device available. We look forward to seeing our students excel with this exciting opportunity and appreciate your continued support.
