Bring Your Own Device Program

Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, refers to the School District’s program that allows students to use a personal electronic device for academic work as directed by a teacher.

A wireless network at the High School and Middle School makes the program possible.


Norwin High School students use iPads to study angles -- even angles made with arms outstretched -- in Mrs. Angela Knipple’s geometry classroom.

It is driven by the belief that 21st Century learning requires school districts to provide real-world experiences for their students.

Because modern smartphones are basically small computers, they can be used for education in many ways. Some potential uses include:

· Connecting to the Internet for research and reference

· Taking notes in class

· Acting as a student response system (like a “clicker”) to respond
to polls/quizzes in class

· Running educational apps

· Watching streaming educational videos

· Recording vocabulary or foreign language dictation practice
