The BYOD to LP2I
Behind the acronym BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), or AVEC (Apporter Votre Equipement de Communication) hides a reality that has gradually imposed itself on the school in recent years: the use of personal digital equipment in the classroom.
The interest of using the digital ?
There are many interests:
- Share, create, collaborate on common documents;
- Use digital work tools in a project such as audio/video editing ;
- Have all your documents and course materials online so you can take them with you wherever you go;
- Use innovative and fun pedagogical tools such as interactive quizzes or research projects;
- And many other reasons.
Using the Google Suite
In order to use this tool in an optimal way, the school has acquired the Google Suite for education. This brings several indispensable tools to the students:
- A mailbox : each student has his or her own e-mail address « @lp2i-poitiers.fr », which makes it possible to communicate easily with other members of the establishment.
- A virtual workspace: one could compare this tool to an online classroom. The teachers drop off their lessons, the student can give back homework, he can exchange with his class…
- A cloud : each student has unlimited space to store his files and find them everywhere. They can share them with other people, and use files that they have to share in order to collaborate, on group projects for example.
- An online office suite : its powerful collaboration tools are a real asset. This suite allows you to type documents, create presentations, create spreadsheets, create questionnaires…
- An agenda : allows the student to plan tasks if he wants to. He can share tasks and also receive tasks from other people.
- A space for discussions : he makes a link between the class and his teacher. Useful to ask questions when you are not at school in case you need help.
The use of these tools means that no pupil has access to textbooks. Depending on his or her choice or that of the teacher, the pupil can choose to take his or her lessons digitally or on a notebook.
Purchasing aid from the region
To accompany this movement, the Regional Council provides substantial assistance to the second year students who arrive at LP2I. Instead of benefiting from a « book cheque » for three years of schooling at the lycée, families receive equivalent aid for the purchase of digital equipment (tablet or laptop) which will be used in class for the duration of the student’s schooling.
