Bring Your Own Device Readiness Checklist
Is your program ready for prime time?
We’ve provided a brief checklist for you, so you know when your program is ready to “Go Digital!”
Our list is not meant to be all-inclusive; rather, you can use this as a starting point and add in your own program's specific details.
- We know what digital curriculum we are going to use.
- The curriculum is purchased, and contracts are in place.
- Teachers have been introduced to the curriculum and are ready to use it.
- Any necessary communications/permission slips to the parents about the new curriculum have been sent.
Network and access:
- Our network has been upgraded and is ready for the added stress and traffic.
- We have a plan in place for handling “forgotten” devices, uncharged batteries and missing powercords, and so on.
- Based on the curriculum and our network capacity, we have defined the types and numbers of devices that will be permitted access.
- We have defined acceptable use of these devices in the classroom.
- We have written an acceptable use policy (AUP), explained it to the students, and sent home copies for parent signatures.
- We have required courseware that teaches students about digital citizenship, plagiarism, and netiquette.
- Communication about the subject has been sent home in the form of an agreement for parents to sign in support of the issue.
- Digital citizenship is revisited at the beginning of each and every school year.
Acceptable use policy:
- We have a written AUP in place that includes many of the items on this checklist among others with regard to use of devices in the classroom, both school- and personally owned.
- Parent and students have a copy of the AUP and are aware of their rights and responsibilities.
