Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT)

Purpose:

Ajman Academy uses instructional technology as one way of enhancing our mission to teach the skills, knowledge and behaviours students will need as responsible citizens in the global community. Students learn collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking in a variety of ways throughout the school day. In an effort to increase access to those 21st Century skills, Ajman Academy will allow personal devices on our 'airplay' Wi-Fi network and school grounds for students who follow the responsibilities stated in the Acceptable Use Policy and the attached guidelines regarding BYOT.

An important component of BYOT will be education about appropriate online behaviours. We will review cyber-safety rules with students frequently throughout the course of the school year and will offer reminders and reinforcement about safe online behaviours. In addition to the rules outlined in these guidelines, students will be expected to comply with all class and school rules while using technology at the Ajman Academy site. The use of technology is not a necessity but a privilege. When abused, privileges will be taken away.

Laptop Promotion

Guidelines:

• Students and parents/guardians participating in BYOT must adhere to the Student Code of Conduct, Student Handbook, Acceptable Use Policy and all Board Policies, particularly Internet Acceptable Use.

• Each teacher has the discretion to allow and regulate the use of laptops in the classroom and on specific projects.

• Approved devices must be in silent mode while on school campus, unless otherwise allowed by a teacher. Headphones may be used with teacher permission.

• Devices may not be used to cheat on assignments, quizzes, or tests or for non-instructional purposes (such as making personal phone calls and text messaging).

• Students may not use devices to record, transmit, or post photographic images or video of a person or persons on campus during school hours or during school activities, unless otherwise allowed by a teacher.

• Devices may only be used to access computer files on internet sites which are relevant to the classroom curriculum.

Apple laptop

Apple laptop required

At the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year, (I)GCSE students will need to purchase their very own Apple laptop computer for use in their classrooms and at home whilst enrolled at Ajman Academy. This will enable students to use a combination of school resources and technologies as well as their own to facilitate their learning.

There are some general specifications that can be considered by everyone, so we have collected these details to give you some guidance.

The ideal computing device for school use:

Is lightweight and sturdy;

Is in a protective carrying case;

Has several hours of battery power and easy options for recharging;
