NB Schools approve Electronic Device Program
Posting Date: 03/07/2014

Submitted by NBHS Principal, Dr. Bob Falkenstein, dated March 3, 2014

Upon my recommendation, the North Baltimore Board of Education approved students to “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) to school in grades 7-12. These procedures went into effect already and will remain in effect for the rest of this year and beyond. Students and staff members are adjusting to this change, and the response so far have been really positive! With teacher permission, students may access our network for educational purposes on any device they bring including Kindles, tablets, phones, and laptop computers.

We piloted BYOD last spring and had a great experience. Since then, staff members have been trained in ways to engage student learning through student devices and also devices provided by the school district. We are using the same design as the pilot program. Teachers’ rooms and common spaces are marked as Green (devices allowed at will), Yellow (devices allowed only with teacher permission), or Red (devices not permitted). For example, during lunches the auditeria is marked as Green. Locker rooms are always Red.

Students and parents have already signed our Acceptable Use policy through beginning of the year paperwork. I have included in this letter the procedures that we will also use. If a student is using a device where they should not, or without teacher permission, then the device will be held in the office for parents to pick up after school (first offense) and so on as outlined in the student handbook.

Technology, phones, iPods, Kindles, and tablets are here to stay. At NB Middle/High School, we want to mesh learning with how teachers and students use technology. Please call or email me with any questions or concerns.

I invite you to follow me on Twitter
