  • BYOD at Calvert Hall

    Calvert Hall’s strong sense of tradition combined with our ultimate goal of producing men of intellect, men of faith, and men of integrity demands that we continually enhance our educational product.

    In light of this belief, we strive to provide our students with an innovative curriculum and modern learning tools. Education has rapidly embraced technologies where students have information at their fingertips. Many of students have been bringing their own devices to Calvert Hall for years. However, full integration of technology in the curriculum requires each student to have a device.

    We believe the future of technology will continue to be about user choice and specific preferences combined with the need to meet both academic and organizational competencies. If a student prefers to use a MAC, why should we tell him he must use a windows computer for school? If a student prefers Windows to a MAC operating system, why should we force him to use that particular type of computer? Additionally, some students prefer a laptop while others like a tablet. Our BYOD program (Bring Your Own Device) allows students to bring what they want to school. The need of each student is variable and having a choice will enable parents and students to have a voice in choosing a device that meets the basic needs of the student as an individual. Some students may want an expensive MAC that will do high-end video-editing. Some students may only need a rather inexpensive Chromebook. Additionally, there is no technology fee with this program.

    The purpose of this program is to enhance and complement the excellent teaching that is already taking place on our campus. While technology is only a tool and does not replace good teaching, technology enhanced lessons are an important part of our educational program. Our lecture-seminar system lends itself to BYOD as students get the basic information in a college-style lecture, and then engage in student-centered activities in seminars. Every student in the class having access to a device will increase collaboration and analysis of the topics presented in lecture and elaborated on in the seminar—two crucially important skills for the 21st century learner.
