BYOD-Bring Your Own Device
To provide all students equitable access to the technology tools to master skill necessary for college and career readiness in the 21st century.
BYOD or Bring Your Own Device is a policy that allows students to bring their own computing devices, such as smartphones, laptops, e-readers, tablets, or other mobile gadgets to school for use on the school’s network.
The Raymondville ISD Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative allows students to bring and use their own personal electronic devices at school. BYOD is not about the devices themselves; it is about creating constructive change in teaching practices and empowering the students to make decisions regarding how they will learn in class. Students become information producers rather than information consumers.
The BYOD initiative is designed to provide Student Centered Learning opportunities, increase student engagement, involve teachers and students with active collaboration and help students become responsible digital citizens. Accomplishing these goals will give students skills and experiences to become successful innovators.
