BYOD Questions & Answers
West Eyreton school is using the SAMR model to implement effective use of ICT into our teaching and learning. Prior to the BYOD trial we have assessed existing class use of ICT to enhance teaching and learning programmes and will be reviewing the progress of this on a termly basis during the trial. We will be collecting student, teacher and parent feedback and look forward to sharing this with you as the trial progresses.
The use of BYOD devices is only for learning purposes, as detailed in the BYOD User Agreement. Any existing games and downloads on the device can remain there, if they are of an acceptable nature. However, unless they are pertinent to learning, their use will not be permitted at school.
BYOD use will be restricted to those teachers that have undergone specific training and are part of the West Eyreton School Staff Cybersafety agreement. Relieving teachers who are not covered by this will not be allowed to have BYOD use in their classrooms.
ICT use across West Eyreton School is planned collaboratively to ensure each class gets a fair proportion of use with the school devices. The aim is to ensure that there is equitable use of the devices throughout the senior school.
