BYOT

What is BYOT in Volusia County Schools?

The Bring Your Own Technology BYOT program allows students in participating schools and classrooms to use their own 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 the curriculum content and collaboration with peers.

The BYOT program provides students with access to their personal technology resources to support teachers and administrators as they prepare students to develop real-world, 21st-century skills.

Listen to Coronado Beach's Elizabeth Sokerka discuss her experience as a first year BYOT teacher, on WSBB Radio.
