BYOD- Bring your own device

Bring Your Own Device – Program Overview

The focus of the BYOD program at Thorndon Park Primary School is to provide tools and resources to the 21st-Century Learner as they need it. A successful BYOD program requires technology to be seamlessly integrated throughout the school’s curriculum. Increased access to technology is essential for teaching students’ skills for a future in which, as societal trends suggest, digital literacy is key. The individual use of personal devices is a way to empower students to work to their full potential and develop essential learning habits with the support of digital tools.

Learning results from continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents and the extended community. Leveraging digital does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. On the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Effective teaching and learning with technology integrate technology into the curriculum any time, any place. The teaching and learning practices at TPPS have been designed in such a way that the learner gains greater freedom and flexibility in participating in learning activities. This has contributed to learners being more independent and taking greater responsibility for their learning.
