"Digital-Divide" Is Not an Excuse to Avoid Implementing a BYOD Policy at Your School

The 21st Century Principal

Recently, I found myself entangled with several people in a Twitter debate about whether BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies actually perpetuate or aggravate the digital divide our students currently experience. Having a BYOD policy would seem to perpetuate the divide between the tech-haves and tech-have-nots. Still, we do need to be concerned about the effects of the digital divide under our BYOD policy.

Idioms, Not Idiots, for Promoting Speaking Skills

Working out the Worksheet

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

With two weeks until school is back in session and in preparing for my presentation on Edmodo for the upcoming TeachMeetNJ unconference , I''ve been reflecting on past practices and thinking about how I structure the educational process in my class.
