BYOD Learning Initiative - Tyngsborough High School
We believe that technology is a valuable educational tool that is deeply tied to the Tyngsborough Public Schools vision to provide an inclusive, innovative and individualized experience that challenges all learners to maximize their potential and positively impact our world.

To that end, we are excited to announce a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) learning initiative at Tyngsborough High School beginning with the 2018-19 school year. Under this program, students in grades 9-12 will be expected to have a laptop or Chromebook available for use during the school day.

The focus of the BYOD initiative is not about the devices themselves. Rather, it is about changing the teaching and learning environment in the classroom. We know that technology alone does not improve learning, but when combined with the right instruction from skilled staff, the opportunities can become limitless. Having ongoing access to technology will also help your child to foster greater independence, increase engagement, and develop the skills required to thrive in the 21st Century.

The district's BYOD goals are to:
* Increase student engagement and productivity through personalized learning and access to technology for all
* Extend and expand learning beyond the school day with anytime, anywhere learning
* Provide authentic and relevant learning experiences
* Foster 21st century skills of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving, digital literacy, and global awareness
