Dealing with BYO computers in schools – Opinion – ABC Technology and Games (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Dealing with BYO computers in schools – Opinion – ABC Technology and Games (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

SCIS's curator insight, January 31, 2013 6:28 PM

'The BYOD strategy in schools has been at the centre of many debates around whether students should be allowed to bring their own smartphones and tablets - especially now that the laptops supplied by the federal government have reached the end of their lifespan. And while there may be naysayers, the benefits of schools adopting a BYOD strategy are numerous - for schools and for students.'

Deborah Welsh's comment, February 5, 2013 9:21 PM
There are always equity issues but BYOD is here to stay.

Thanks, Beth Dichter. I find the mindsets very understandable and appealing, much like the science habits of mind.
SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, April 6, 11:48 AM

We must stop educating students out of their creativity and foster an environment that celebrates the creative genius of the students entrusted to our care.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 7, 5:22 PM

Watching yourself teach is now so simple with digital video! It is an illuminating and powerful experience. It is many years since I was in the classroom for substantial periods of time but the memories of seeing my self teach on video remains a strong and vivid memory so many years later. At that time I learned so much about my craft simply by watching my self and reflecting on how the student's were learning (or not learning), engaged and involved or not, time on task, and especially whether the lesson was coherent to the students,  linked to prior material and foreshadowed coming lessons.
