LINCOLN BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) GUIDELINES

Asociación Escuelas Lincoln recognizes the importance of using information technology in today’s world and strives to ensure every student has access to high quality technology resources to enhance their learning. We promote the balanced use of technology by developing students' technology fluency and digital citizenship habits not only within their schoolwork but also as an important life skill in their personal lives. Parents and educators must equip young
people to use technology responsibly and to integrate these skills with other essentials, such as critical thinking, literacy, numeracy, and citizenship. Essential to the use of technology is ethical responsibility.

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program at Lincoln, starting from grade 6, aims to integrate personal technology into the educational environment, allowing students to utilize their devices to enhance their learning experiences. Please note that students in the elementary school will have their technology tools provided by the school. The program is governed by certain guidelines to ensure the security, safety, and productive use of technology.

Laptops are required for middle and high school students. While iPads, Android tablets, and Chromebooks are great personal devices, they do not meet the requirements for the primary device at Lincoln.

There is no need for students to purchase a new laptop if they are already in the laptop program. Only students who are bringing a laptop for the first time or purchasing a new laptop should ensure they meet the minimum requirements listed above.
