Purpose of BYOT Initiative

The mission in Volusia County schools is to prepare students with the skills and knowledge needed for success in a democratic society. Upon graduation, students enter a wide range of working situations that require technology skills, ranging from operating a computer for email to publishing online documents for collaboration. To facilitate students’ acquisition of these technology skills, school sites must have access to new technology devices. The Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) initiative will provide students with access to technology resources to support students, teachers, and administrators as they prepare students to develop 21st-century skills.

Overview of BYOT Program

The BYOT program allows students in participating schools and classrooms to use their own wifi-enabled devices (laptops, smart phones, tablets, etc.) to connect to the district’s BYOT network. Teachers facilitate the use of student devices by integrating Web 2.0 tools, Internet research, and applications to engage students in curriculum content and collaboration with peers.
