Quick Collection Of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Resources

The Web20Classroom

But while students are embracing BYOD with loud applause, educators are taking a step back and thinking about the impact BYOD has on their teaching. I recently worked with teachers on a BYOD initiative and the first questions I would get asked centered around how they were going to utilize all the different devices at the same time, how they would see what was on each screen and how did their teaching need to change now that every student had a device.

Quick Collection of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Resources -Before I left my role as Director of Instructional Technology for a large district in North Carolina I was instituting a BYOD program. And during that time I collected a mountain of resources to implement BYOD effectively and get the most out of it for learning. What a year it has been.

We''re about to launch a pilot at one of the K-5 elementary schools in my school district, and I''d like to collect stories of elementary BYOD implementation, links to videos and anecdotes, training materials and ideas - essentially, anything that has to do with BYOD in the elementary classroom. Here''s a link to the BYOD info page from my school district.

The Beginning of BYOD in New York City Schools

Graphite Blog

This brings some challenges but also many exciting opportunities for those schools willing to explore the possibilities of a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program. As a school, we''re taking steps to tailor how our BYOD program will run at PS 16 next year. The NYCDOE is providing us guidance at the BYOD Institute, which will give us insight into how the upcoming school year could look for implementing BYOD.

BYOD: Bring Your Own Disenthrallment

Fractus Learning

In October of 2014, my wife and I moved from the bright lights and beaches of Australia’s Gold Coast to rural South Australia. The school’s IT set up is all that anyone could ask for; 1:1 iPads in Years 8-10, a BYOD program in senior classes and three well equipped computer labs. Perhaps I could become “iPad Man” or maybe even his sidekick “Learning Boy” ( BYOD: Bring Your Own Disguise.) BYOD: Bring Your Only Dentist! )

Encouraging Authenticity In Learning

The Web20Classroom

Either 1:1 or BYOD or some combination of both is giving students the opportunity to discover learning or create new information in a variety of ways. But through a pilot program we discovered that the focus of our professional development around BYOD needed to not be on technology. Many of our teachers were trained knowing they would gradually ease into BYOD. In the last several years, a major shift in instruction began to happen.

A Wake Up Call For School Leaders

A Principal's Reflections

We need to begin to empower students to take more ownership of their learning by promoting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the use of mobile learning devices if schools do not have the means to go 1:1. By BYOD I don’t mean just allowing kids to bring in and use their own devices in the hallways and during lunch. That is not BYOD. So the other day I tweeted out this comment, “I am amazed each day to see so much educational progress in my Twitter feed.

Why #Edcamp Is So Awesome

So while I was in an amazing session on digital leadership (which you should really check out the notes for) I could watch the notes for the BYOD or Twitter chats session.

EdcampElon was another event in a long like of teacher-driven professional development that can have a lasting impact on the learning of all who attend. Don''t know what an Edcamp is or looks like?

#Internet4schools: Make Your Voice Heard

A Principal's Reflections

This was an extremely big deal five years ago and ultimately gave us an edge in terms of the many successful initiatives we rolled out including Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and digital learning across the curriculum. Image credit: [link] Fast forward to 2014 and one would think that all schools would be in a position to provide Internet access to students like we were able to for the past five years.

Change is a Mindset

A Principal's Reflections

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) implemented in 2011. The three guiding tenets of our BYOD initiative are to enhance learning, increase productivity, and conduct better research. For many years New Milford High School was just like virtually every other public school in this country defined solely by traditional indicators of success such as standardized test scores, graduation rates, and acceptances to four year colleges.

Devices Need to Support Learning

A Principal's Reflections

It really puts into perspective why we make many of the decisions that we do at New Milford High School as to why we decided to implement a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative and don''t mandate the use of one specific tool to support learning. So yesterday as I was scanning the #NJED hash tag on TweetDeck I came across this intriguing image shared by Mike Marotta.

How to Use an iPad for Academic Use

We are a BYOD district, but still being rooted in paper, our paperless skills are still emerging. Well, Matt has taken the guess work out of using an iPad in a BYOD classroom. edtech BYOD BYOT choice iPad paperless One of my students, Matt D., created a presentation on how to use an iPad for academic use based on his experiences last year. Part of the delay is that it takes time to figure out an effective workflow with new technology.

#Flipclass Workflow

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

Curriculet is also available as an app in Edmodo , but since many of my students have smartphones as part of my district''s BYOD initiative and Edmodo apps are only accessible on computers and iPads, I do not utilize the Edmodo app version of Curriculet at this time. So our mid to end of week activities featured BYOD, paper, and face to face tasks. edtech #ELAFlip #flipclass assessment assignments autocrat BYOD edmodo flipclass flipping
