A Teacher's Responsibilities
Teachers are expected to:
Be familiar with Acceptable Use Procedures
for teachers and students.
Set guidelines for use of mobile devices for
your classroom.
Effectively monitor the use of mobile devices
for students.
Develop lessons that allow for seamless
integration of technology but not necessarily
every lesson every day.
A Student's Responsibility
Students are expected to:
Get the parent/student usage agreement signed before they may use
their device (student handbook).
Exhibit Digital Citizenship and follow the Acceptable Use Procedures
while using technology.
Have sole responsibility of technology devices they bring to school.
Be responsible for his/her own device: setup, maintenance, charging,
and security. Staff members will not store student devices at any time,
nor will any District staff diagnose, repair, or work on a student’s
personal device.
Be responsible for bringing devices to school fully charged and in good
working order.
Follow the guidelines/procedures set forth by each classroom teacher
for mobile devices use.……
Why do I want to do this... again?
Who, When, Where, and What
Disciplinary Concerns
Discipline is largely up to teacher and campus
discretion with use of the Student Code of Conduct.
Use prior/existing discipline procedures as a guide.
 Texting in class ~ passing notes in class
 On a different website/app ~ not on task, working
on other assignment
 Theft of a device ~ personal theft
 Device distracting others ~ student distracting
others by any means
Dealing with distractions:
Teach students what is acceptable
Keep devices on desks from beginning of class
“Show me your screen”
Allow texting/phone calls between classes and at
If students know they can text later they are
less likely to try and “get away with it” during

The MOST basic options...

Instruct the students to leave their phones in any of the
above conditions to demonstrate compliance with your
Entry Signs
Signs to guide students in the use of technology in class
each day
Red Sign - No Use of Personal Electronics Today
Yellow Sign - Devices will be used at some point WHEN the
teacher instructs
Green Sign - Devices should be out, on, and logged in as
soon as possible for immediate use in class
The Eight Commandments
#1 YOU are the teacher in the classroom!
Set clear expectations of when students will be
using devices and when they will not
Lids closed or screens down for students when
you are giving instructions
“No screens visible” when you need to make an
important point
Have students turn “Knees to me” when you
want to guarantee attention
The Eight Commandments
#2 Ask three before me...
Students should ask three other students how to do
something before asking the teacher....especially
with BYOD students can frequently help each other
and relieve you of the need to know everything about
every device.
The Eight Commandments
#3 Think about...”What is the analog
How would you handle student off task behavior
without technology involved?
Often the solution for students misusing technology
will be similar!
Note Passing = Texting
Use contrary to directions = Off task behavior
Playing unapproved e-games = Playing card/dice
The Eight Commandments
#4 Bring it out when they need it, and put it
away when they don’t.
Kind of explains itself, doesn’t it?
The Eight Commandments
#5 You do not need to know how to use
every device or tool, but you should be
able to tell what they can and can’t do.
Generally students will know how their device
works and teachers will not have to know each
You should however be able to tell the difference
between a smart phone, a cell phone, a tablet, a
netbook, and a laptop
The Eight Commandments
#6 Walk around!
By walking around your room you are able to
monitor students’ screens.
We all know students are more likely to be on
task and asking questions if you are moving
around the room than if you are sitting at your

The Eight Commandments
#7 Always have a plan “B”...
Some days things will just not work!
 The technology will be glitchy
 The network will be down or poor wifi
 The kids will react in an unexpected way
 The lesson is just a flop first period and needs
a serious rethinking!
It is important to be flexible and have a spare
lesson based on a subject appropriate TEKS
stashed away for a glitchy day.
The Eight Commandments
#8 Communicate what students will be
allowed to do when they are done with
work in the classroom.
Following are some things that you may
want to allow students to do when they are
finished with their class work for the day...
Seven things you can always do...
1. Read a book, magazine, or blog post about a school
relevant subject.
2. Work on an assignment for another class.
3. Play a pre-approved game that builds skills relevant
to class.
4. Have a discussion with a classmate about a class
related topic using a technology platform.
5. Listen to a Podcast or watch an educational video
from TED or Khan Academy.
6. Get organized by reviewing and updating your
calendar and assignments.
7. Write in your personal journal.
Create and maintain a Class Website or Blog.
It doesn't have to be perfect or even pretty, but
you'd do well to consistently post information
in a meaningful and easily digested format.
I won't say there is a right way or a wrong way,
but blogs have pretty well solved this for us.
They keep things organized by date, but also
allow you to tag content to help your students
Ease turning in any format...
Quite simply, your students will likely be creating
documents/projects/assignments in any
number of programs, applications, or tools.
That could get quite confusing.
With the school year 2014-15, Angleton started
using Office 365.
Rubrics, Rubrics, Rubrics!
Create rubrics for your assignments. It sounds pretty simple and ... really it
In very simple terms, establish what your expectations are.
Then allow
your students a little bit of freedom in how they accomplish that. One BYOD
site strongly suggested having the student complete a self-evaluation of their
project using the prescribed rubric.
Rubistar - create your own customized rubrics.
Multimedia Mania Student Checklist - students can use this checklist before
submitting their work.
Multimedia Rubric - a project rubric that could be applied to a variety of
Creating a Rubric - Tutorial - complete with templates, this site walks you
through the process of creating project rubrics.
A shared space...
Create an online space to aggregate and share
your classwork.
It really doesn't matter what you use ... But
using your Office 365 site will get the students
use to using it throughout their school career.
Diigo, Delicious or whatever can be used for
Share some of your Evernote or OneNote
documents. Use whatever Web2.0 tools get
you excited. If you have content there, your
students will check it out!
Take devices on faith...
No matter what ... Become device agnostic.
Androids, iOS, laptops, netbooks, smart
phones, dumb phones, whatever.
You'll certainly have your favorite, but you don't
have to stress about what they use. The
students will figure that out.
Develop the learning experience with flexibility in
mind (clear rubrics) and let the students work
out the details.
The MOST COMMON concern...
Keep "equity" in mind.
Obviously you will see some inequities ... some
kids will have the latest and greatest devices.
Other kids may not have any thing.
The school's resources can help bridge that gap
(check out in the library, labs, etc.), but
sometimes you'll just need to be flexible, too.
Apply for the next technology grant or use
Digital Wish, or DonorsChoose.
Baby steps...
Start small and build on success. allows you to conduct polls
by text messaging ... What a simple way to
engage your kids in the "language" that they
know so well.
Publish the results to your blog, tweet your
findings ... It just goes on from there.
Socrative is pretty sweet, too. Possibly nothing
easier than You get the
All skills require practice...
Remember that good classroom management is critical to an
effective classroom.
There are times when electronic devices absolutely need to be
put away.
Maybe have students set them on the corner of their desk so that
you see it, and the student still feels in possession.
Make your expectations very clear (another rubric??) and be
Remember that these devices are tools - they are great when
they help us meet our objectives, but they don't need to get
in the way either.
