Standard

Grand Erie is now a BYOD board and has been since spring last year.  Wireless accessibility allows students to access the internet on their own electronic devices.

This speaker from George Mason shares the reasons why this is important for our students.

This is the first step toward developing critical thinking and creative problem solvers in our students.  We still have some work to do with pedagogy catching up to our technological capabilities but I am thinking we are not alone.
