Bring your own device (BYOD)

It is clear that technology is evolving at a rapid pace. Students today are adept at using mobile touch screen technologies such as iPads and smart phones, and social media such as Facebook, Twitter etc. The College is continually looking to incorporate these technologies and even aspects of social media in the classroom to improve student motivation and learning.  
 
Because of the rapid evolution of technology, current research is limited and can become outdated in a few short years as the technology changes. What is not changing is the students widespread use of these technologies and the use of social media on a daily basis outside of school. Research has suggested that implementing technology to enhance and improve student learning creates a positive learning atmosphere for most students. 
 
Implementing a bring your own device (BYOD) program is another way to improve student engagement, to interact with peers, to improve communication and to extend the place and time of learning, not restricting learning to the classroom. As of 2014, the College has introduced a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program for all students.
