10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic

10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic | ed tech.computer class.writing ctr.ICT skills | Scoop.it

With budgets tight, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without having to shell out for a device for each student. A solution for many has been to make classes BYOD (short for “bring your own device”), which allows students to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphonesfrom home and to use them in the classroom and share them with other students.It’s a promising idea, especially for schools that don’t have big tech budgets, but it has met with some criticism from those who don’t think that it’s a viable long-term or truly budget-conscious decision.

Whether that’s the case is yet to be seen, but these stories of schools that have tried out BYOD programs seem to be largely positive, allowing educators and students to embrace technology in learning regardless of the limited resources they may have at hand.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, September 19, 2013 2:09 PM

This looks like a potentially quite powerful tool, enabling students to use any internet device as a response system and instructors to easily and quickly set up quizzes, polls, and feedback scenarios -- all for FREE. A smartboard is not needed, instructor can use a computer connected to a simple projector or a large-screen TV. Game-like competitive elements add motivation to participate.


Perhaps not a killer app, but certainly one that many classrooms can put to effective use...and the price is right.


Some interesting demo videos and user interviews are located here:

Thanks Jim! It's very early days for us at Kahoot! but what we can promise is there's a lot more to come. Quizzing is just the very beginning - so please join us on our journey :)

The future of Kahoot! lies in the power of 100s of students and their smart devices connected in one space, simulating the real world with social exchanges, discussions, challenges, collaborations, democratic processes, computing real life problems and ethical dilemmas - simultaneously with millions of other students and classes across the globe.
