#BYOTchat | A web site for the #BYOTchat twitter chat

"The idea of #BYOTchat developed from my school district’s 1:1 iPad Committee.  We realized that although the iPad is a powerful educational tool, it was not within our school’s financial capabilities to outfit each student with iPads.  Our committee then shifted towards favoring BYOT as the our 1:1 mobile learning solution.

Then came the reality.  The reality that we didn’t know what to do next."

Lessons from Our One-Year Experiment with BYOT

Schools can successfully implement the practice of allowing students to use their own technological devices on school networks. Early next month, our school will mark the one-year anniversary of our implementation of a policy that allows our students to use their own laptops, tablets, iPods, and smartphones on our school WiFi.

Point/Counterpoint: Should Students Use Their Own Devices in the Classroom?

Point/Counterpoint: Should Students Use Their Own Devices in the Classroom? | BYOT @ School | Scoop.it

Allowing students to use their personal devices in the classroom is imperative in a world full of ever-changing technology. Our students are remarkably adept at discerning the right devices for their needs. Because of my school’s open bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, I see students using tablets, smartphones, laptops, and e-readers of all brands and models. Students sit in the cafeteria critically assessing each device for its use in school and personal life. Some students create flashcards on their phones for vocabulary review. Some use Poll Everywhere to gather data for math assignments. One group custom built the hardware and coded the open source software for a multitouch kiosk for our alumni directory.

Is there an educational rational for BYOD programs? | williamstites.net | BYOT @ School | Scoop.it
Peo­ple say that the BYOD approach is a reflec­tion of what they see in their own lives and in what is beyond school and can move cer­tain aspects of more tra­di­tional pro­grams way from the school. What I haven’t read is an edu­ca­tional ratio­nal as to why to go in this direc­tion. How it will sup­port learn­ing and effect pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment.

Going Mobile: Key issues to consider for schools weighing BYOD — The Digital Shift

Going Mobile: Key issues to consider for schools weighing BYOD — The Digital Shift | BYOT @ School | Scoop.it

No doubt, 2011 was the year of the tablet. From the release of Apple’s iPad2 in March to the recent debut of hybrid ereaders like the Nook Tablet and Kindle Fire, mobile computing has made great strides. This year, we’ll see those devices go to school.

And, boy, are we in for some changes, as districts nationwide ponder BYOD (bring your own device) schemes. The lifting of restrictions around student devices was born of necessity—tight budgets, plus increasing tech adoption among kids. Practically speaking, BYOD means schools will need to purchase less equipment. The idea has merit, but needs serious consideration before it can be implemented.
