The York County School Division is recognized as an international leader in the effective practice of BYOT, Bring Your Own Technology, which encourages students to bring their personal technology tools to school for learning. YCSD was named a 2012-2013 Microsoft Innovative Pathfinder School District as a result of the division’s BYOT initiative.
As students utilize their personal technology devices in school, they can learn new ways to use them for collaborating and interacting with their teachers and each other to research information, solve complex problems, create original products, and publish their work.
BYOT was first introduced to secondary students at the start of the 2011-12 school year. The program has now expanded to include an e-Reader program for students in grades 3-5.
