Bring Your Own Device
The way in which students learn has evolved, and children and young people are more than ever engaged with their devices. The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) strategy lets students work on the one device at school and at home, allowing students to complete a task seamlessly – work is kept in the same place, enhancing students’ engagement. It also teaches children from a young age the rules of online behaviour, including how to safely interact online whilst at home and in the classroom.
In addition, having access to various apps allows students to create for the purpose of learning, collaborate with their peers and share their work, thus harnessing the power of digital technology and online learning. The Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals (former Google suite), which includes email, Google Drive and many more features, provides the students with powerful resources to work collaboratively and creatively, within the classroom or with different people across the globe, consolidating the necessary 21st-century skills for successful adults.
