BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device in which students bring their own personal technology device into the classroom.

The main advantage of BYOD is that students are equipped with the latest technology that has the capability, performance and reliability required for learning. The BYOD program not only provides students with access to expanded global resources and content, but also gives students the opportunity to take ownership of their learning and facilitate creative problem solving.
