Bloomfield Hills High School uses technology to support students, teachers and our four cornerstones through:
- Creation of stronger, more meaningful relationships between students, teachers, parents and the community
- Development and implementation of stronger interdisciplinary units and lessons that ensure that students experience authenticity in their learning while making connections across subjects
- Opportunities for both students and teachers to achieve a higher level of innovation
- Increased sense of ownership of the learning environment and level of personal responsibility
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a technology initiative where students bring a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning. A personally owned device is any wireless and/or portable electronic piece of equipment that includes laptops, netbooks, tablets/slates, and smart phones.
Why BYOD? Several advantages include:
- Personalized student-centered learning
- Embraces 21st Century learning
- Student real time access to information
- Availability of Cloud-based resources and storage
- Flexibility in learning and instruction
- Supports shift towards less paper consumption
- Support students in the learning communities environment
- Supports BHHS Cornerstones: Relationships, Responsibility & Ownership, Authentic Learning, and Innovation.
