2 Background information Special Thanks Gratitude must be given to Merrylands High School for making available the majority of the following information. Thank you for sharing your hard work and expertise from the experience of your BYOD program. What is BYOD? Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to students bringing a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning. A personally owned device is any technology device brought into the school and is owned by a student or the student s family. There are different models of BYOD. The laptop or tablet must be able to the school Wi-Fi and have specific software or apps installed. Why BYOD? The purpose of BYOD is to continue technology-rich learning for all students at Kariong Mountains High School. There will be more opportunities for students to collaborate with others, connect with a global community, receive feedback from teachers, and create products like videos to show their learning. Educational research shows that BYOD leads to many benefits in learning. Some of these benefits are listed below: Devices such as laptops and tablets are already a very significant part of students lives. Since these devices are integral to their lives, they should be integral to their learning lives. Mobile devices are part of 21 st century living and integral to learning 21 st century skills, which are vital for students to learn and develop. BYOD allows even further personalised learning for students. BYOD allows learning to be even more collaborative. When students are able to use their own devices, it often leads to increased motivation and engagement in learning. 2 P age

10 Practical tips for parents All students who are part of the BYOD trial will undertake specific lessons on how to use their devices and the internet safely. As a parent/guardian, you know your child the best. The following advice looks at ways you as a parent can support your child s use of their device and internet effectively, so they can learn safely and securely. Set boundaries Students don t need to use their device all the time Consider specifying where in the home the device can be used and where it is stored when not in use Monitor Talk about internet activities openly and feely Have your child use the device in a shared family area where you can monitor how long your child is online as well as the websites your child is visiting Share the experience Ask your child to demonstrate the way they use their device for school Ask your child to teach you how to use the device Focus on the positive aspects of the internet when sharing the experience with your child Spend time looking together at sites that are fun, interesting or educational Encourage your child to question things on the internet such as Who is in charge of this site?, Have I found information or is it just opinion, Is this site trying to sell me something? Protect Have a discussion with your child that all information on the internet is good, true or helpful Empower your child to use the internet safely by showing them safe sites and explaining why they are safe. Have a discussion with your child on what kind of personal details they should not give out on the internet. 10 P age
