ISTE 2013: Do Students Need Schools to Learn? | EDTECH K-12 | EDT894 Information Accessibility | Scoop.it

"A conversation with Cameron Evans, chief technology officer for Microsoft Education, turned from bring your own device (BYOD) to the controversial topic of school choice faster than you can post a tweet.

 

"Public education has to be very careful with bring your own device as a strategy," warns Evans.

 

"Whether it's BYOD or a one-to-one initiative where schools are providing the equity access themselves, the biggest focus has to be on, 'Does the place of learning matter?'" Evans says. "Not, 'Do the devices, technology and infrastructure matter,' but 'Do I physically need to be here? And if I physically need to be here in order for learning to occur, for my curiosity to grow, for my creativity to flourish, what is it about this place that is better than me going to school online? Or at home? Or to a charter school?'"
