Tips for BYOD Equity

A Principal's Reflections

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives are being adopted by districts and schools around the globe. With the growing access that students now have to technology at home, educators are seizing this opportunity to increase access in the classroom. In theory this all sounds fantastic and there are many benefits that I have witnessed firsthand after successfully implementing a BYOD initiative over five years ago at my high school.

The Drivers of a Successful BYOD Initiative

A Principal's Reflections

Technology seems to be more accessible that ever before. Access to technology is by no means isolated to only adults. As devices have become more affordable over the years, parents have bestowed a variety of mobile technologies upon their children. As a result of the advances in technology and an increase in Wi-Fi access, schools have slowly begun to respond to this trend. This has resulted in a growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives being adopted.

Streamlining BYOD With ClassLink

A Principal's Reflections

After a semester long pilot program with the senior class during the spring of 2011, we rolled out our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program to the entire student body in September. Even though our school has more than enough available technology in four computer labs and two mobile carts, some students are more comfortable working on their own devices. How do you manage your BYOD program if you have one at your school?

Is your classroom ready for BYOD?

Neo LMS

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) classroom setups are very common nowadays, but there are a few aspects to consider before implementing them. I tried to BYOD when I was in college and the reactions of my teachers were mixed – some were totally open to it, while others were a bit cautious. In some educational systems where bringing devices to schools is a school offence, there has to be a change. I already know some students who want to BYOD because they find it very convenient.

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.

It's Not a Technology Issue

A Principal's Reflections

Technology still gets a bad rap in many education circles. This ends up resulting in the formation of rules and policies that severely restrict or prohibit student use of mobile technology and social media as tools to support and/or enhance learning. Even with the proliferation of technology across all facets of society, we still see schools moving at a snail’s pace (if at all) to adapt, or better yet evolve, to a digital world.
