Mountain Vista High School is promoting a Personally Owned Devices (POD) program. To be able to live, learn, and work successfully in our information-rich society, students must be able to utilize technology effectively. We have reached the point in education and learning where it is important for students to have access to devices on a daily basis while at school. Increasingly content, publications, and demonstration of learning is found online.
This program encourages students to bring their own devices (smart phones, tablets, and/or laptops) to school to use for educational purposes. While there is technology available for student use, we are not capable of providing a 1:1 (student/device) ratio at MVHS. The POD’s program is an excellent way for students to extend personalized instructional technology to their home environment. Our English and Math Departments, in particular, will be utilizing devices regularly to access content (Math XL) and publish/demonstrate learning in the classroom. We would love for your student to bring one, and in general, laptops or Chromebooks are going to be the most helpful.
Please remember that this is an encouraged, but optional program. The purpose of this communication is to build a school-wide common understanding of the MVHS’s POD’s program as well as to outline our school’s expectations around the devices and our school wifi.
