BYOD is definitely a huge thing that the Peel Region is promoting.  It is going the change the school forever now that is has started.  Why you ask?  It's because BYOD is about taking technology in schools to the next level.  Typing and writing are both used at RTMS.  But slowly and gradually, typing is beginning to increase.  Maybe one day at RTMS, we will stop writing forever!  BYOD is going to teach us to be more responsible and careful with anything we have at school or at our homes.  The reason behind this is that only we are responsible for anything bad that happens to our devices.  For instance, if we lose our I Pads, it's no one's fault besides our own.  So BYOD is promoting technology as well as responsibility.  There is nothing bad about BYOD.  In fact, I believe it's great because we can learn in so many different ways we had never even thought of before!  For example, if you bring your device (eg: I Pad) to music class, you can scan different QR codes and see videos that will teach you to play something on an instrument.  The only thing is that BYOD shouldn't increase to an extent where that's all we use at school.  We should use it and other methods (eg: writing) too.
