BYOD Test Assignment
Starting off With BYOD in Your Classroom
So your students are now bringing their own devices into the classroom. Now what? There are several steps that you will need to follow in order to create a productive environment with student devices in your classroom. Here are the things that you will need to do with your classroom.
- Talk to students and parents about who has devices and what types of devices will be brought to your classroom. (Hold a parent meeting to describe BYOD and answer any questions. Send a letter to parents with an overview of how BYOD will work in your classroom. Review the BYOD Handbook.)
- Set the ground rules with your class. When, where, how and why will students be using devices? (Create a student agreement for BYOD.)
- Practice classroom management strategies consistently so that students are familiar and comfortable with how devices are to be used in your classroom.
- Plan your lessons with "learning" in mind - not devices. Students will use their devices as tools to complete the learning.
