A brief timeline containing the items that should occur in the year leading up to the implementation of a BYOD program. This article does a great job explaining exactly what big ideas need to be addressed and doesn't focus on the hardware side of implementation. I like that it includes the professional development that needs to occur.

Bring Your Own Device Toolkit

Bring Your Own Device Toolkit | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Today’s education system is evolving to take full advantage of the potential of mobile technology devices to inspire learning and create independent, critical thinkers. However, with tight budgets, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without the costly burden of purchasing a device for each student. One potential solution that is being explored is BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device. This allows students to bring their personal laptops, tablets, and smartphones from home and use them for educational applications in the classroom. At a time when budgets are shrinking, school districts are considering BYOD programs to integrate cost-effective technology into their educational programs. It’s a promising idea, especially for schools that lack sufficient technology budgets. BYOD takes advantage of the technology that students already own and are familiar with. However, BYOD programs have been met with some criticism from staff and administrators who believe the challenges outweigh the perceived benefits.
