The Barrow County School System recognizes that technology plays an integral role in the education of our students, both in school and at home. An increasing number of students now own personal computing devices, which have become the tool of choice for many. As a school system, we used to forbid students from bringing cell phones to school. However, just as technology evolves, so has the way we envision students learning. If we are Boldly Committed to Student Success, then we must enable our students to bring and use their own technology devices, as learning tools, in our schools.
On this site you’ll find a variety of resources specifically targeting the use of mobile devices (school and student-owned) in the classroom. It has been developed to support YOU and your needs.
