The Edtech Revolution: 2010 – 2017

Securly

In December 2010, The Journal –“t he leading Technology based education publication for K-12 and higher education”– published an article with a 5-prong prediction for the following year.

A Principal's Reflections

As the principal, I decided to implement Bring Your Own Device back in 2010 as a way to not only take advantage of student-owned devices but to also improve the learning culture through more empowerment and ownership. The key , whether 1:1 or BYOD, is to thoroughly plan and put learning at the forefront for kids, teachers, and administrators. 1:1 BYOD BYOT mobile learning Pocket Points

Implementing Mobile Devices With a Focus on Learning

A Principal's Reflections

As a principal I quickly saw the potential in mobile learning and as a result our school became the first to embrace Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) back in 2010. With any initiative, especially BYOD or 1:1, the focus has to be on learning. Koole provides a useful checklist that schools and educators can refer to when looking to integrate mobile learning effectively as part of a BYOD or 1:1 initiative.

A Principal's Reflections

As we explored moving towards Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD ) in 2010, I was able to glean powerful insights and evidence of efficacy from the Forsyth County School District in Georgia. Going BYOD sounded like a great idea based on what I had either read or saw online. Digital literacy is more important now than it has ever been.
