BYOD: Bring Your Own Device @ ISM
International School Manila is committed to delivering the highest quality education in line with current best practices in the integration of technology. In 2011 students in grades 11 and 12 began participating in our BYOD program and from this success the program was expanded in 2013 to include grades 9 and 10.
We believe that students thrive in an environment in which education with technology is a seamless part of their lives. The initiation of the BYOD program has helped enable students at ISM to take ownership and responsibility for their learning both in and outside of the classroom and the introduction of BYOD to Middle School as well has helped provide an easy transition into the High School learning environment.
For school year 2016-17, Middle School Students in grades 7 and 8 will continue to bring their own laptops to school each day. The BYOD program in Middle School started in 2014 and thanks to much positive feedback from teachers, parents, and students the BYOD requirement remains.
In short any student at ISM in grades 7 - 12 is required to bring their own laptop to school to use as a learning tool in the classroom.
This website will serve as a guide for information, requirements and frequently asked questions for our grades 7-12 BYOD program.
