#BYOD Vision/Mission Statements


A colleague recently inquired about vision/mission statements inclusive of BYOD. Although I haven't been entirely successful in locating them, I hope those of you in my PLN will be forthcoming!

In the meantime...here's the next best thing:
To facilitate 21st Century teaching and learning within the Jesuit context, Brebeuf created the state's first 1:1 Bring Your Own Technology environment. All students are exptected to carry a device for learning of their choice. The real world is full of choices. People choose which phone to text on, what type of computer to use, what technology to buy. At Brebeuf Jesuit, students are given this option from the first day of school. Students can bring in any device, attach it to the school network and access a variety of tools to meet their needs. We do not lock our students to a single operating system, a single type of device or only one way to solve problems, but encourage students to identify the tools that best fit their learning needs. (Source: http://www.brebeuf.org/?page=InformationTech)
The Williamson County School Board adopted a strategic plan November 15, 2010.  Technology goal 2 was established “to develop and implement a plan for allowing students to bring their own digital device to enhance learning.”
