From Distraction to Engagement: Wireless Devices in the Classroom (EDUCAUSE Quarterly) | EDUCAUSE

From Distraction to Engagement: Wireless Devices in the Classroom (EDUCAUSE Quarterly) | EDUCAUSE | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it
"The path of technology integration in education is lined with disruptions on one side and opportunities on the other. Technology teams work to bring useful technology into teaching, all with good intentions, only to encounter unwanted side effects such as distraction and disruption in the classroom."

It's important or me to add an editorial note here: I don't believe that technology ADDS a distraction to the learning environment. Students are engaged in the learning or they are distracted. When they are distracted, the technology is just another vehicle for the distraction—no better or worse than daydreaming or acting out.

Educational Technology Guy: Should schools require students to purchase specific types of tech?

Technology is a great educational resource and tool. There are literally thousands of types of technology, software, and hardware out there for educators and students to use. But what happens when a school requires students to have a specific brand of technology?

Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom | 1:1 and BYOD | Scoop.it
In this post, Amdy outlines some great lessons that take advantage of the iPad, but there's no reason they can't inspire similar lessons In a BYOT environment. From the article:

"At Burlington High School in Burlington, MA, we are entering our eighth month of a 1:1 iPad initiative that began in September 2011. Don't get me wrong, we think the iPad is a great device for learning and gives each of our students a dynamic learning tool that can be used across the content areas and to accomplish a variety of tasks. Many of the critics claim that we are backing our students into a corner by giving them one brand and one skill set to learn exclusively on one device. This is not the case at Burlington. Furthermore, I have support."
