What does BRING I.T. mean?

posted Sep 7, 2018, 7:23 AM by Kristen Colquhoun   [ updated Sep 7, 2018, 7:26 AM ]

What does BYOD or Bring I.T. really mean? BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device or Information Technology (I.T.) device. It allows students to bring a device they are comfortable with and have permission to use at school to do school work. While many of our students have cell phones, not many students are bringing devices with the intention of doing school work. We want to help facilitate learning 21st-century skills in our community and using internet-connected devices is the way to do this. We aim to use solid teaching strategies with technology in order to enhance the ability to connect globally and work efficiently. Have questions? Feel free to contact the school for more information about our vision and plan.
