• BYOD at WMS

    BYOD means students bring their own devices to school for educational purposes.
    In the classroom, students will use devices responsibly, and only with the permission and direction of the teacher or other staff member.  Of course, technology alone will not improve learning, but when combined with the right instruction from skilled staff, amazing things can happen.  BYOD is designed to support and empower all students and community members in effective use and implementation of technolgy to foster collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity.
