Welcome to the Information Portal for the Bring Your Learning Technology (BYLT) initiative at New Albany-Plain Local Schools.  The Technology Learning Coach team of NAPLS is working with teachers throughout the district to facilitate the use of students' personal learning technology in the classroom.



New Albany-Plain Local Schools' BYLT initiative was featured in a story in the Monday, October 1, 2012, issue of the Columbus Dispatch.  Click here to read about the use of personal learning technology in central Ohio schools, with quotes from district technology coordinator Jon Stonebraker and NAHS sophomore Miranda Scott.

Great things are happening in school districts around the country with the incorporation of students' personal web-enabled devices into classroom curriculum.  For an example of BYLT at work, below is a feature story from the May 6, 2012, edition of NBC Nightly News, highlighting the use of devices in Forsyth County, Georgia.

Please Note:

The BYLT initative at New Albany-Plain Local Schools is still developing.  As classroom teachers incorporate the use of students' personal devices during the school day, you can expect to receive more information.  At this time, NAPLS is not recommending or encouraging families to purchase additional web-enabled devices for students.
