10 Pros And Cons Of A Bring Your Own Device Scheme.

EdTech4Beginners

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) schemes have got more and more popular over recent years. Below I have listed 10 pros and cons of BYOD: PROS: 1) The devices are excellent learning tools which bring a lot to the classroom. 9) Work can be shared easily with classmates, parents and on social media; this gives children an audience. 5) BYOD leads to more copying and pasting.

Here are some of the key take-aways I had as both a Tech Director and an Educator. Coding and Computer Science have been primary topics in education for the past few decades.

I See Brilliant People – #ISTE2016 #iplza16

Kyle Pace

If you go to ISTE as part of a team from your school or district, it’s really easy to do the “divide and conquer” thing to get a wide variety of learning experiences whether that be the poster sessions (which were awesome this year), the BYOD workshops, the concurrent sessions, and even in the exhibit hall. ISTE is a conference that everyone interested in edtech should experience at least once.

#ISTE2014 Use Twitter & Voxer when Travel Plans Go Awry

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

I know quite a few educators are using Voxer as a podcast tool for group chats with participants sharing philosophical ideas in a group conversation, but in this situation we were focused on practical applications.

Digital Citizenship & Data Collection

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

Students tracking their digital footprint could make for a horrifying or surprising project and very relevant in this world where social media puts one''s actions on full display. In thinking about Wordle for analyzing texts , students could complete similar steps for social network aggregation and create a word cloud of their Twitter tweets and blog posts by using Tagxedo or copy/pasting FaceBook status updates into Wordle.

Ask a Tech Teacher

‘Technology in education’ has become the buzz phrase for cutting edge classes that are plugged into the latest education trends.

Especially because there was nothing wrong with them, they had just been let down by the education system. They had asked if we could make them something for their new education center to help employees focus. Fast forward six months, 4 student-led meetings, and over a dozen pitches later and FH Gizmos and Skype are joining forces on a new cooperative: We know student voice can revolutionize their learning, but can it revolutionize the edtech they use?
