Bring Your Own Device


Well, parents, the students came back from media all “abuzz” about the wonderful experience they had in our CT media center working to download books and use their own personal or available portable devices. Currently it is Daily 5 time in our classroom – a time when I meet with individuals and small groups while the rest of the students work independently on reading and writing activities.  Our room is charged—not only with lots of technology, but with a lot of student energy and engagement!


I told students today that they may use their devices in class with a few guidelines:

·         The devices must be here under your approval.

·         Devices may ONLY be used to complete tasks that are on the students CAFÉ menu (reading and writing activities).

·         I must be able to see device screens at all times. Students sit with their backs to me and screens facing where I am in the room.

Thanks for your support of this initiative at Cherry Tree!
