Is BYOD a good policy for schools?

Posted on Updated on

BYOD

Lakehead Public Schools has recently introduced the concept of BYOD. This is where students are allowed to bring their own smart devices such as tablets, phones, and laptops. Many educators, parents, and politicians believe that students should not be allowed to bring devices that can access the Internet. They believe it is the responsibility the school to provide technology.

So the question is: Should students in grades 4 and up be able to bring their own devices to school?

Students answered this question in an exposition format below.

In class we have been reading excerpts from The Book of Awesome, by Neil Pasricha, to help us learn how to write more descriptively. Like Joseph Conrad said in 1897, ” The power of written word is to make you hear, to make you feel…. it is above all else, to make you see.”
