Bring your own device (BYOD)
Haywards Heath College is going to be a BYOD campus. Which means that we are asking that every student bring their own tablet or laptop in to use in every lesson. This approach has had incredible success in a number of colleges and universities around the world, and we think will really benefit the outstanding teaching, learning and assessment that is going to happen here.
Individualised learning: it means that students can access resources and work through activities at their own pace and in their own way.
Collaboration: It has been shown to increase the collaboration and sharing between students and teachers in the classroom. Students can share ideas, submit work, create resources, get feedback, collaborate with students from across the Chichester College Group all within the lesson.
Flexibility: having a device with you means you can work wherever, with whoever, whenever. This gives you great flexibility in these times to be able to work online, in college or at home.
Research: it means you will be able to look things up and follow your own enquiries, all at your finger tips. Teaching and learning has changed and is no longer just about imparting knowledge and information; you are at the heart of the learning and are in control.
