BYOD Resources


Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Resource Page

 J.E. Turner Elementary will be implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative.  At Turner we believe that students should be able to use technology as a learning tool.  We will no longer ban approved mobile devices from campus, but will embrace their use to be a learning resource that can reach outside a four walled classroom.  While we would love to be able to provide a device for each child, we simply do not have the funds or support to manage that many mobile devices.  With BYOD, students are already familiar with their device and learn to take responsibility for it.  We believe through this initiative, students will learn to use their devices responsibly and for educational purposes.  While we encourage our students to bring a device, they are not required to do so. 

How will these device be used? 

Device usage might include:

  • research
  • online polls
  • response
  • blogging
  • ereading
  • online learning environments
  • educational apps
  • creating/editing documents
  • collaborating with peers
  • QR code activities (scavenger hunts, assignments)
  • taking quizzes
  • watching assigned videos
  • communicating with the teacher
  • taking notes
  • and many more!!
