Should Schools Embrace “Bring Your Own Device”? | NEA Today

Should Schools Embrace “Bring Your Own Device”? | NEA Today | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

Ushering classrooms into the 21st century is an expensive undertaking, but painful budget cuts have made purchasing tablet computers, iPod Touches, Kindles and other devices unfeasible, say district officials. So schools are asking students to “BYOD,” or Bring Your Own Device. Over the past year, BYOD or BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) programs have been piloted in Ohio, Minnesota, Texas and Georgia, with more states possibly on the way.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We are still ushering classrooms into the 21st Century. That is not only expensive it is time-delayed. Having said this, there are many unknowns that even pilot programs will not reveal. If schools are going to do it, they should work on what that means in their community, their school, and their classrooms.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

One of the unstated aspects of the emerging hidden curriculum is that we are connected 24/7 to our work. We learn this in school. Furthermore, we now provide our employers with our devices to do their work.

This infographic is about BYOD in education, but I think it is applicable to most enterprise BYOD strategies.

The Next Revolution In School Tech: Bring Your Own Device

The Next Revolution In School Tech: Bring Your Own Device | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Teachers are often uneasy about students bringing their mobiles into class, but soon they may be handing out detentions to those who forget them.

Via Paz Gonzalo
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

There are still many questions that need to be asked. Will every student be able to bring a device? What happens when thefts and damage occur? Will that impact the parental thinking? What happens when a student says, "This is my device and I can use it the way I want"? Certainly, the broadband might belong to the school, but current technology does not always need that access and kids know that.

 

I always find it interesting it is people outside the schools i.e. consultants, journalists, private industry people, etc. who think these are good ideas. Do teachers? Do students?
