It is such a great opportunity to have BYOD in our school. The other day I was talking to my friend and she said that she didn’t have BYOD at her school. I was surprised! “But don’t all students have BYOD in Wake County this year?” I asked. She told me that her school is not a BYOD school yet, and they don’t have BYOD this year.
That’s why we should appreciate it, because not everybody has it, and just because we have it doesn’t mean that we can misuse it. It is a privilege that can be taken away so we use it for educational purposes only.
Let's talk about the good things… We can play educational review games… for example… Kahoot! Plus, we can research or study for tests on our devices! We can work with each other on projects using our new Google Apps for Education accounts, too! When our teachers put up the green or yellow paw, we can use our devices. It is really cool that we can use devices in SCHOOL!!! Years ago, people would have never thought that you could take devices to school, but I’m so glad that now we can. I think school is better and more exciting because of it! ANYWAY, as this whole blog entry is about, BYOD is a great opportunity in our school that EVERYBODY should appreciate!
