Wake Students Could Use Personal Mobile Devices In Class

  • 1

wake school

Wake County school administrators are looking for ways to boost student achievement, and ultimately, graduation rates. The school board met yesterday to discuss options from computers to classroom coaches.

In most area public school classrooms, there’s one electronic device for every three students. School board members said they want a 1:1 ratio, and they are considering a BYOD – bring your own device – policy, according to WRAL.

Wake County Public School System staff will review various aspects of the idea, from the cost of boosting bandwidth at schools to accommodate an array of student laptops and tablets to the guidelines for classroom use.
