The reasons why we will be implementing BYOD include:
. to increase pupil engagement and involvement in lessons
. to facilitate greater pupil independence
. to provide increased opportunities for creativity
. to enable additional collaboration between pupils
. to enable spontaneity, to seize ‘the idea and the moment’ – anytime and anywhere

What will it look like? Pupils will:
. carry out internet searches to find information, to aid their understanding and knowledge
. read and evaluate articles via the Internet, to consider and evaluate different viewpoints
. research – to create articles and produce projects that link with their studies and/or individual interests
. work on written documents and edit them, applying approriate grammar
. produce creative writing, using and applying a range of skills and techniques
. create ebooks, with a focus on content and creativity in presentation
. look up words for meaning and correct usage
. find music
. blog, to share with a global audience their learning and interests, and to interact with others
. use games that support their learning
. take photographs that can be used in a range of educational ways
. produce and edit videos to support their learning and the learning of their their peers
. explore multimedia opportunities
. complete homework
. undertake revision
. work on collaborative projects and assignments with their peers

Increasing pupils will take a greater lead in their learning, ‘flipping’ the classroom, with the teacher giving input and support as needed.
