A Principal's Reflections: The Device Conundrum - 1:1 vs BYOD

A Principal's Reflections: The Device Conundrum - 1:1 vs BYOD | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"As we continue to advance in the digital age schools and districts are beginning to re-think pedagogy and learning environments by instituting either 1:1 device programs or Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. In my opinion, schools that wish to create the most relevant and meaningful learning culture will go in one of these directions. It is tough to argue the potential impact of either program that is implemented diligently and with a focus on learning that will not result in the enhancement of essential skills sets that our students need to succeed in today's digital world. Probably the most significant impact, either 1:1 or BYOD can have is in the area of teaching digital responsibility, citizenship, and the creation of positive footprints online. After all, in the real world that we are preparing our students for, technological literacies and proficiencies are the cornerstones of numerous career paths."

more...
Ralph Springett's curator insight, March 29, 2013 3:25 PM

For higher education well managed BYOD appears more suitable than a 1:1 programme, yet many of the learning benefits are the same. Higher education  can learn a lot from the results of the 1:1 research. New 1:1 research is now on the ReGear Learning website.

Educational technology is moving full speed ahead, which makes it easy to forget that there was a time, not too long ago, when CD-ROMs were cutting edge, when overhead projectors were the definitive source for classroom presentations, or when students learned lessons on social topics by watching black and white educational videos with titles like "How to Be Well Groomed.""

"Bestselling author and educational expert Alan November’s new book Who Owns the Learning?: Preparing Students for Success in the Digital Age compiles lessons learned over 30 years of educational experience. Beginning with his first teaching job, November began to realize that the most powerful education happens when students take ownership of their learning and when they feel that what they produce contributes meaningfully to a community."

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 2013 4:54 PM

I certainly agree. Giving students choice and control of their learning empowers them, encourages risk taking in learning and also inspires confidence. In my experience when children are guided through a learning process first they develop skills and confidence to independently learn.
