Bring Your Own Device

Gibbons School has a BYOD program in all grades. This means students bring their own personal computers/devices to school as part of their instructional supplies. Personal devices are used to access resources, complete assignments and organize the student’s work and time. Activities may include researching information, producing documents, analyzing data, reading e-books, taking notes, scheduling events and demonstrating learning in new ways.

BYOD enriches and extends learning by:

  • Allowing students to participate in their education anytime, anywhere
  • Increasing student engagement
  • Focusing on 21st Century learning, including critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, self-direction, global awareness and cultural literacy
  • Enabling access to digital instructional materials
  • Teaching digital citizenship
