  • 3. AGENDA OF MEETING 21st Century Learning Why e-Learning is important? Student demonstration Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) What is BYOD? Rationale/Myths Year 5/6 Optional Trial Device Requirement Safety/Security Guidelines Draft timeline Question and Answer Time
  • 4. 21ST CENTURY LEARNING AT RED BEACH It is our aim to develop in our students the capability, skills and attitudes that will enable them to be learners for life. We want our young people to grow and develop, knowing and applying the qualities and characteristics of lifelong learners. Our overall goal at Red Beach School is to empower students to achieve and make a difference. Technology is an essential element to keeping today‟s students engaged, therefore the objective of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is to develop an environment that caters for 21st century learning.
  • 5. WHY IS E-LEARNING IMPORTANT New Zealand Curriculum (2007, p.36) states that e-Learning may: • “assist the making of connections by enabling students to enter and explore new learning environments, overcoming barriers of distance and time” • “facilitate shared learning by enabling students to join or create communities of learners that extend well beyond the classroom” • “assist in the creation of supportive learning environments by offering resources that take account of individual, cultural, or developmental differences” • “enhance opportunities to learn by offering students virtual experiences and tools that save them time, allowing them to take their learning further”
  • 6. WHY IS E-LEARNING IMPORTANT At Red Beach we feel that e-Learning also provides: • A vehicle for personalising learning in ways that ensure each student is fully engaged in learning and is successful in attaining established learning standards. • Access to digital content and digital learning environments that provide multiple pathways to learning. • The opportunity for learners to collaborate with teachers and peers and to express themselves and their ideas most effectively.

  • 16. WHAT IS BYOD? How can we sustain the level of technology to support this direction in learning? • Bring your own device (BYOD), or sometimes BYOT (bring your own technology), or BYOB (bring your own browser) refers to technology models where students and staff bring a personally-owned device to school for the purpose of learning. • The over-arching purpose at Red Beach to introduce BYOD is the way in which increased access to a personal device can enable inclusive and more personalised learning pathways through the curriculum. http://elearning.tki.org.nz/Technologies/Software-for-learning/BYOD-Mobile- technologies#what
  • 17. RATIONALE Choice • Learners are diverse. Learning styles and preferences vary and we wish to recognise this by allowing learners to choose the device and applications most suitable for them. Anywhere/Anytime • Teaching and learning occurs inside and outside the classroom. We want to empower learners to utilise tools for learning no matter where they are. Preparing for the future • Our students will move into BYOD environments at intermediate, college, university, and the work place Flexible Learning • The nature of learning is changing. We are creating flexible learning environments that facilitate collaborative and individual learning Digital Fluency • We are empowering teachers and students to become digitally fluent and responsible users of technology
  • 18. BYOD MYTHS • BYOD deepens the digital divide “Students who do not have personal technology devices have greater access to school-owned technology tools when students who bring their own devices to school are no longer competing for that access • BYOD will result in students engaging in dangerous activities. Our students are living in a digital world with ubiquitous access to technology. “Without BYOD, at the end of each school day, students leave school and immediately turn on their devices and explore the web”. We need to prepare them for the digital world in which they live. http://neal.school.nz/community/news/7-myths-about-BYOD-debunked
