20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools

20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"BYOD policies–Bring Your Own Device–allow schools to bring technology into the classroom with a “bottom-up” approach. Such an approach can save money, allow students to use their own devices, and encourage a student-centered approach to learning."

I like this concept and prevents particular companies from monopolizing the educational landscape and limiting student options. Apple seems to dominate classroom space, although increasingly Android is the choice of young people. BYOD allows the relative strengths of each platform (and device) to benefit the learning opportunities available in the classroom and not just the commercial interests of some multinational company.

So students and faculty like the idea of BYOD. The trick will be to manage BYOD so students get an equivalent learning experience.

Harvey Chambers's curator insight, April 13, 2013 11:02 PM

Read this and consider trying JUST 1 in your classroom over the next three weeks.  Assess the pros and cons and determine whether what you used has value for future use.  If not, try another and do the same.  You'll be surprised at how beneficial the attempts are including technologies in your class will be.

With budgets tight, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without having to shell out for a device for each student. A solution for many has been to make classes BYOD (short for “bring your own device”), which allows students to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphones from home and to use them in the classroom and share them with other students.

The growing headache of protecting mobile devices

The growing headache of protecting mobile devices | Mobile Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) schemes have become increasingly prevalent in most businesses worldwide, as employees look to use their own personal devices in a business context. When asked if employees valued certain devices over others, 89 per cent of those surveyed claimed this was the case.

 

“Rather than fight against the tide, organizations should embrace the use of these devices and work alongside staff to ensure that comprehensive IT policies and best practice guidelines are put in place to assist and inform employees about how their devices should be used. End-point protection for these devices is also crucial if businesses want to safeguard employees against an ever-changing, increasingly sophisticated threat landscape.”

"In the last three years, we have seen the rise of a new movement: BYOD, or bring your own device. This movement is gaining strength mainly as a result of the rise in personal smartphone and tablet ownership. BYOD will affect adoption of mobile learning (mLearning), and mLearning managers need to stay abreast of developments, both in the movement and in their own organizations."
