Parent Presentation - BYOD 2014 Parent Presentation - BYOD 2014 Presentation Transcript

  • Bring Your Own Device
  • Agenda of Meeting 7pm-8.30pm • 21st Century Learning – – – – Pedagogy 7.15 Demonstration of Student Collaboration Students Learning SAMR Model • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) – – – – – – What is BYOD? Rationale/Myths 2013 Trial Device Requirements Security/Safety Guidelines 2014 Draft Timeline • Question and Answer Time
  • Pedagogy • “The curriculum encourages all students to reflect on their own learning processes and to learn how to learn.” The New Zealand Curriculum • Individual learners are empowered to take increasingly more responsibility for their learning
  • Pedagogy • Students are able to select their choice of learning tool from within a flexible learning environment to best meet their learning needs • We have already seen a shift in the learning from having class sets of laptops in trolleys, to laptops within classrooms and this year through the BYOD trial • Having devices in classrooms allows seamless integration of ICT across the curriculum
  • Flexible Learning Environments • Relating to Others • Thinking • Participating and Contributing • Managing Self • Using Language, Symbols and Text
  • NCEA/NZQA • NCEA/NZQA is changing. In 6-10 years all assessments will be online. We want our students to succeed in the 21st century environment that is being developed. Dr Karen Poutasi, Chief Executive • .!topic/mle-reference-group/IN6-UkvHUro
  • 21st Century Fluencies • Learners need to develop 21st century fluencies Image from the 21st Century Fluency Project
  • Google Apps/Teacher Dashboard • Google Apps is an easy-to-use online word processor, spread sheet and presentation editor • Enables students to create, store and share documents instantly and securely, and collaborate online in real time. • You can create new documents from scratch or upload existing documents, spread sheets and presentations • There’s no software to download, and all your work is stored safely online and can be accessed from any computer or student owned device. This will be the standard web platform with Teacher Dashboard to

  • The Big Question • How can we afford to sustain the level of technology needed to support this direction in learning? • BYOD supports our pedagogical direction
  • An Intro to BYOD (BYOB/BYOT)
  • Reality
  • BYOD Is…
  • BYOD Is…
  • BYOD 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.
  • BYOD Rationale • Personalised – By having our own devices we can each have the tools, shortcuts, widgets and add-ons that are the most relevant to us. Our desktops and browsers are the way we want them. • Preparing for the future – Our students will move into BYOD environments at intermediate, college, university, work place.
  • BYOD Rationale • Flexible Learning – The nature of learning is changing. No longer do we sit in rows and listen to the teacher. 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.
  • BYOD Myth 1 • 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 Myth 2 • 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, often unsupervised”. We need to prepare them for the digital world in which they live.
  • BYOD Myth 3 • BYOD will necessitate the standardisation of apps and software across all devices – Students are not widgets and don’t have to use the same tools and do things in the same way. When teachers work with students to understand learning goals, they challenge students with ways to meet them, which enables real learning to take place.
  • Trial • Rooms 5 and 7 trialed BYOD for two terms in 2013 • Results overall were positive • Trial review results in pdf format are located at
  • Trial • Parents didn’t need to buy a device – children brought what they already have • Classes already had a range of equipment including – Laptops – iPads – Desktops
  • Minimum Device Requirements • Battery Life – 5-6 hours to get through a school day without recharging • Weight – Light enough for your child to carry easily • Wireless Access – must have wireless access to internet • Must be able to save to the device either via hard drive or SD Card/USB device • Laptops – must have up-to-date anti-virus software • No gaming hardware such as PSPs or “phones” • Parents responsibility to make sure device meets minimum requirements
  • Future Considerations • Farm Cove Intermediate – Working closely with Pakuranga College regarding BYOD requirements • Pakuranga College – Website has recommendations as to device requirements – –
  • Cloud Based Applications • Your child will develop a digital toolkit whereby they will choose which tool to use for the particular purpose • There are a vast amount of free tools online such as Glogster (online poster), ThingLink (interactive online photo), Animoto (video slideshows), Prezi (presentations) etc
  • iPad Apps • A list of recommended apps is on our website ( • Paid apps are entirely optional NOT a necessity
  • Tracking Internet Activity • The school has invested in a WatchGuard system which tracks all internet activity on your child’s device
  • Cyber Safety
  • Safety Guidelines • Lockable storage cupboards are provided in each classroom - Children need to be responsible for their own devices. Other schools have found children lose their jumpers but never their ‘device’. • Classroom Culture - Expectations will be set as part of the classroom culture i.e. devices should be kept in school bags before and after school - Classroom treaty includes ‘online’
  • Safety Guidelines • Sunnyhills School holds no responsibility for any loss or damage that might occur • Parental Responsibilities Parents are responsible for - insurance for their device (check with your insurance provider accordingly) - naming equipment - sending a device that meets minimum requirements • Child Responsibility - charging device at home - responsible for device at school
  • Safety Guidelines • How do I keep my child safe going to school? • We recommend devices are kept in bags out of sight, just as you would with any equipment such as sports gear, musical instruments etc • Children should be walking to school with an adult/small groups or the walking school bus.
  • Sharing • Your child may be involved in collaborative group work, which could mean, whilst in that group, your child will be in charge of his/her device, and with your child’s permission another child could work on the device with your child. • We want to promote a ‘share the screen’ environment
  • Ergonomics • Screen time – 20 minutes then a break looking out window for 1-2 minutes • Sitting properly with good back and chair support • Still investigating best practise with touch technology
  • Ergonomics • Backpacks – heavier items should be packed close to the back • Don’t overfill
  • 2014 Draft Timeline • Term 1 – Agreement Forms sent out in Week 1 – Start early term 1 - classes staggered – Not in week 1 – Term 1 has camp for year 6 in week 4, swimming sports, N4L etc • Term 2 – Aim to be fully functional
