About Bring Your Own Technology
In the guide below, you will find important information and frequently asked questions related to the Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) program in Volusia County Schools.
BYOT is an innovative educational program in which students can use the technology they already own as an instructional tool under their teacher’s supervision.
Our mission in Volusia County schools is to prepare students with the skills and knowledge needed for success in our democratic society. Upon graduation, students enter a wide range of working situations that require technology skills. The BYOT program empowers students and teachers to leverage students' existing personal technology as a learning tool to expand the classroom beyond four walls and school gates.
By allowing students to access a wireless network, the BYOT program encourages students to bring their personal Wi-Fi-enabled smartphones, tablets, netbooks, and laptops to class so teachers can govern the use of these tools to foster the development of skills that will prepare our students for the 21st century.
