ICTI-120: BYOD 2 Integration Ideas & Projects

Learn how to integrate BYOD in your classroom through the process of balancing your students’ needs, curriculum demands, and the available technology.

The heart of your BYOD policy is what happens in the classroom. Once your foundation is established, build your capacity for technology integration to support student success.

Target Audience: Current and pre-service K-12 educators and administrators

If you’re thinking about these sorts of questions, this course is for you!

What does BYOD look like in my classroom?

When beginning to plan Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) lessons in your classroom, it is important to balance curriculum demands. Understanding student needs and taking inventory of available technology is an important place to start. ICTI-120 will lead you in identifying these necessary components to making BYOD in your classroom as success.

What technological tools best support who and what I teach?

In ICTI-120 you will learn how to leverage the benefits of various tools to meet the learning objectives rather than jumping from one new gadget to the next.

How do I create device neutral assignments?

BYOD programs create opportunities for increased infusion of technology in the curriculum. It’s important to take time to consider how to leverage the benefits to create student-centered instruction that guides students through inquiry learning. ICTI-120 will show you how device-neutral plans shift the focus from the technology to the learning experience.
