Challenging the Model of 1:1 with BYOD | Edutopia.org

Challenging the Model of 1:1 with BYOD | Edutopia.org | 1:1 Roll Outs | Scoop.it

This year my school district in Vermont ventured into a sort-of BYOD/1:1 hybrid program. We realized the importance of allowing our students access to technology to enhance their learning, but the infrastructure wasn't in place to tackle a traditional BYOD. And we, like many if not all schools, were also constrained by budgets, so a traditional 1:1, where each student receives the same device, was also out of reach.

 

Instead, we chose to be creative with our technology and professional development. We used money from our technology budget and constructed a model to supply teachers with a mix of mobile devices, mostly laptops and iPads, and teachers applied to take part in a mixed device technology-integration pilot program.

 

In many aspects, the program is like BYOD because each classroom adapts to a set of different devices with varying capabilities, but in our case, students aren't actually bringing their own. And like a traditional 1:1 program, devices are spread to students throughout the room, but instead of each student receiving an assigned device, classes are left to select the appropriate tool for every assignment.

I actually found this blog super helpful. Our school is in the midst of rolling out a 1:1 iPad initative to our college level students. It should be interesting to see if they are a little more tech savvy and can pick up the ins-outs a little quicker, hopefully making the transition a successful one.
