BYOD Begins With Trust and Respect

A Principal's Reflections

I have written extensively over the past couple of years about our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative at New Milford High School at the Huffington Post and on my own blog. It has been interesting to look back at all my blog posts to see how far we have come with BYOD at NMHS. It was during the summer that Ron Watson , the NM District IT Director, and I met to discuss the future of BYOD at NMHS. What do you think are the keys to a successful BYOD initiative?

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. Top 10 BYOD concerns: 1. BYOD deepens the digital divide.

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. Not long ago, mobile devices were considered perfect for any past-time activity, and had no place in the classroom. Adopting BYOD in schools seems like a win-win situation. Myth No 2: BYOD is not safe.

Is Your Digital Citizenship Program Up to Snuff?

Leadership Lounge

Digital Citizenship Week is officially celebrated every October — but it’s never too late for school leaders to review and reflect on how educators are addressing digital citizenship. Since it was coined more than a decade ago, the meaning of the term "digital citizenship" has expanded. These skills are still important, but what constitutes good digital citizenship today encompasses a great deal more.

Addressing the most common parent concerns about BYOD in schools

Neo LMS

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. I for one believe BYOD at school is a clear case of the if you can’t fight it, embrace it mantra. By allowing kids to bring and use their mobile devices in the classroom, schools can make learning more fun and engaging.

Every Schools' Obligation

A Principal's Reflections

We routinely hear how students use digital tools inappropriately for sexting, cyberbullying, cheating, video recording teachers and fights with peers, and plagiarizing. Unfortunately, these behaviors materialize as schools are not doing their part to educate students on digital responsibility, citizenship, and creating a positive footprint online. It is the responsibility of schools to educate all learners regardless of age on these important topics.

It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT

A Principal's Reflections

Image credit: [link] As society continues to move forward in terms of innovation, technology, and global connectivity, schools are being stymied by relentless cuts to education. This has resulted in the reduction of staff, larger class sizes, lack of follow through to repair aging buildings, and the inability to keep up with purchasing and replacing educational technology. The world of education is often defined by the “haves” and “have nots”.

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. When it comes to educational technology I often get the feeling that the learning is often secondary. Our motto is pedagogy first, technology second if appropriate when integrating mobile learning devices.

How teachers address cell phones in class

Ask a Tech Teacher

I teach online grad school classes in how to integrate tech into education. Protocols for these mobile devices have little in common today with how they were addressed a decade ago. In 2009, a National Center for Education Statistics survey showed that about 90% of schools prohibited cell phones during school hours. Too often, school digital devices can’t connect, or can’t connect in the volume required to run a class. I hope you can educate me!
