The Drivers of a Successful BYOD Initiative

A Principal's Reflections

This has resulted in a growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives being adopted. However, many schools and districts that have adopted BYOD have done so without proper planning and support. The overall goal of any BYOD initiative should be to support and enhance student learning. BYOD begins with trusting and respecting students. A rash decision is made to go BYOD without a sound rationale for how it will impact student learning.

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) classroom setups are very common nowadays, but there are a few aspects to consider before implementing them.

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.

Top 10 BYOD concerns — and how to overcome them [Part 1]

Neo LMS

BYOD at school is more than the latest buzz phrase you hear at every corner of the teacher’s rooms or along school hallways. More and more schools adopt BYOD policies and allow students to bring their own mobile phones, tablets, eBooks, and other devices in the classroom, and use them as tools to enhance learning. But failure BYOD stories exist as well, and they rarely hit the headlines as often. But this shouldn’t stop schools from giving BYOD at least a chance.

Debunking 3 myths about BYOD in the classroom

Neo LMS

BYOD — Bring Your Own Device — has gained some momentum in today’s education system. From temp teachers to entire school districts, more and more educational staff debate about or seriously consider the adoption of BYOD in their instruction. Adopting BYOD in schools seems like a win-win situation. But as with all things belonging to the real world, that one Murphy’s law that says “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” applies to BYOD as well.

The Device Conundrum - 1:1 vs BYOD

A Principal's Reflections

As we continue to advance in the digital age schools and districts are beginning to re-think pedagogy and learning environments by instituting either 1:1 device programs or Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. Probably the most significant impact, either 1:1 or BYOD can have is in the area of teaching digital responsibility, citizenship, and the creation of positive footprints online. I am extremely interested to hear what others think about 1:1 vs. BYOD in schools.

So we set out to employ BYOD (bring your own devices) with augmented reality. The post Augmented Reality – The Art of BYOD appeared first on EdTechTeam. There are times in a school year when we are able to try things out with students with less risk (meaning failure is ok). For me, one of those times is often found at the end of the school year when final exams are finished and objectives are complete. It’s at these times that I like to try out something new.

BYOD — Bring Your Own Device — has taken the education system by storm. There’s been a lot of talk about BYOD in schools, on whether or not it is beneficial for the learning process of students, with serious arguments in both camps.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs are a natural corollary to technology-based educational initiatives. Challenges for BYOD are, however, also obvious: strain on school internet networks, content management, cheating and distraction. There is also a concern that BYOD creates digital divides in the classroom between well-resourced students and those from families that simply cannot afford to give their children devices.
