BYOT stands for Bring Your Own Technology, and means that students are able to use technology that their family owns while at school. Although any device will be helpful, devices which allow the student to create content (Netbooks, Chromebooks, laptops, tablets) and which have a keyboard are best suited, and often less expensive than devices designed for consumption (cell phones), but both types of device are acceptable.
LCPS has selected Cedar Lane Elementary as a phase 1 school for the county’s Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT). Your child's teacher will give the exact date when her class will begin. Students who have submitted their signed Acceptable Use Policy
, may, at the discretion of their classroom teachers, begin to use their own technology for academic purposes in the classroom. Students will connect their devices to Cedar Lane’s wireless network, and use them for academic purposes only. In the near future, BYOT will be common in all LCPS schools.
Students who do not bring devices will be provided with a device to use in the classroom, which ensures that all students will be able to participate.
