At İzmir SEV Middle School, BYOD(Bring Your Own Device) approach was adapted and our fifth grade students started using their ipads on one-on-one basis in the second half of the 2013-2014 academic year as our piloting group. In Maths, Science, Social Studies, Turkish and English lessons 1:1 ipad usage was promoted. SAMR model and Mankato’s philosophy was taken as the starting point and by means of getting all the stakeholders of school on board, the BYOD 1:1 ipad project took its start and consequently, IT entegration in our school’s educational system was accomplished successfully.
The concept of IT Integration in Education means that IT is integrated in the learning/teaching process of all the subject areas in an appropriate and meaningful way by means of an interdisciplinary approach. Izmir SEV Schools’ focus points on IT Integration in Education are as follows:
- To accomplish the Learning Targets
- To support students’ learning
- To provide meaningful learning experiences
- To support support students acquire 21st century skills
