In order to best prepare students for academic success and the challenges of the future, the Middle School curriculum is enhanced through a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) MacBook program. Advancements in technology develop and improve essential skills in communication, collaboration, global awareness, creativity, problem solving, computation, and critical thinking skills. MacBooks give students the opportunity to work independently or collaboratively in groups both inside and outside the classroom. Students can be flexible, gain a better understanding about their learning styles, stay organized, utilize e-books and textbooks, and personalize their experiences for motivation and productivity. In terms of in-class capabilities, MacBooks provide identical content development and ensure continuity and consistency. This single device significantly enhances efficiencies in instruction, professional development, and infrastructure management. The BYOD program gives teachers the opportunity to build from the fifth-grade 1-to-1 MacBook program and expand students’ MacBook knowledge.
