We are excited to offer the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative at Laurel Park Elementary during the 2017-18 school year. For details of the program, please read below.
The BYOD initiative will be available for all 5th grade students during the 2017-18 school year. Participation is optional, and is not tied to a student's performance in school. Creating a BYOD friendly atmosphere will allow our teachers to create dynamic, student-centered learning environments that provide opportunities for immediate feedback and discussion, stimulate student-to-student collaboration and communication, foster the development of critical thinking skills and individual creativity, and allow students to access more devices than what the school can currently provide.
BYOD Mission Statement:
By implementing the BYOD program, Laurel Park Elementary will inspire students and teachers to meaningfully integrate the use of technology for the purpose of creating authentic learning experiences which will foster communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.
