phase four, it is proposed that principals will select other staff members willing to complete training and build student centered classrooms using technology as a tool, and determine additional staff to integrate into the program. Establishing a district wide research and development team for instructional technology and a district wide student advisory committee are also proposed for phase four.
To allay any concerns about students accessing inappropriate sites at school, MPISD will control all access to the internet, according to Dehart. He said MCDs used on MPISD campuses would only be able to access the internet through the district's wireless network. All others would be blocked.
Phase two, he proposes, includes providing devices for principals and district administrators; and providing and modeling an interactive and student centered training for principals and administrators; as well as calls for gathering data from surveys of students and parents regarding BYOT.
"We recognize that technology is not a panacea for all the things wrong in education, and there are a few. Technology is a tool, a valuable tool, but a tool none the less. It is a tool we must harness for the benefit of our teachers and the benefit of our students," he added.
"This is a skill that they must have to compete in the world. Our Mission Statement says that MPISD will graduate students who have the ability to Read, Think and Communicate," Dehart said. "In today's world, a big part of communication is the ability to use mobile communication devices. We want to facilitate that in a way that makes sense educationally for our teachers and students, and financially for the district."
The plan calls for the district to make use of the personal MCDs the students are already bringing to school, rather than purchase them for every student; and devise a set up that promotes collaboration among students in using the technology, as part of the learning process.

"Technology is what is here now and our students are coming to school every day with technology in hand. For years we've tried to fight that but that is a losing proposition. We have decided to get on the boat Puma Leather
According to the Dehart, the district is also going to make sure regulations are in place so that students who come to school each day with an MCD in hand will be able to use these devises in class for educational purposes, to help them and their fellow learners conquer the world of information that is out there and that they need to know how to access.
During last week's school board meeting, Dehart told the board that technology is not the wave of the future, but the wave of the future of education; and more for the here and now rather than the future.
"Technology is a tool, collaboration Puma Roma Shoes Black And White is a method of learning and they are both in the immediate future for students at MPISD," he said.
the instructional team to complete training, model and promote the student centered classroom using technology as a tool; and finalize BYOT administrative procedures.
He reported that the district school board and administration decided against purchasing an MCD for every student. "That would be redundant as many of the district's students already have them. The district also realizes that if every student has his or her own device, they will work individually on projects. But that's not the way the world is today. Collaboration is a vital skill for students to learn. By limiting the number of devices available, students will be forced to work collaboratively," he said.
Phase three sets out that principals will provide devices for a campus instructional team comprised of staff identified by the principals, along with devices for student use in these classrooms; and calls for Puma Sneakers Gum Sole
Phase one of Dehart's BYOT plan emphasizing technology as a tool includes researching different devices to determine what will be best for the district, and ensure that the infrastructure (bandwidth, wireless access, etc.) is in place to support multiple devices simultaneously accessing electronic textbooks, Web 2.0, internet, and educational applications. Phase one also includes choosing the best devices.
and go with the flowbut we will, however, control the oars so it goes where we want it to go in our schools."
