Tech Pulse - BYOD Approaches Dodd

As the Cheshire Public Schools community, and specifically Dodd community, approaches the implementation of our district-wide BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiative, I'd like to get a sense of how the faculty/staff feels about the impending initiative.  Please take a second to respond to this single-question poll.  Select the choice that best characterizes your feelings at this point in time.

  1. Calculators are technology but don't seem to get much mention. Food for thought

  2. No offense, but everyone involved in this revolution will tell you that Math needs to move beyond the graphing calculator as a claim to integrating technology. Math can get more creative with the way they integrate tech. I haven’t blogged a whole lot yet on Math because I have been trying to keep my posts somewhat universally appealing. I can say that what I have learned about Math and integrating technology is that it is often incorporated through real-world, authentic applications of math and how students will utilize the concepts you teach in the future, both short-term and long-term (career). To that end, you really could have your students conduct research in a Math class.

  3. Several of my special needs students are using devices from home as a form of communicating their wants and needs. They have apps already installed on their devices that they use between School and home.

  4. Calculators are a form of technology but getting students to investigate calculator apps and other content related apps and programs is where I think we need to encourage them so that there device is more than a machine for texting, playing games, and watching videos. It becomes a device that integrates all aspects of their life and how they manage it. Another example would be learning to find a calendar or to do list app that replaces their agenda.
