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.”

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."

Alan Ovens's comment, April 4, 2013 7:18 PM
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.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, April 5, 2013 9:40 PM

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.

What Teachers + Educators should learn about BYOD

 

Gust MEES:

Most of articles, blogs and Tweets witten by educational people are showing the advantages of "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) and they embrace very well BYOD, which I do also; but...

 

 

 

There are some more things to consider such as:

 

- A BYOD Policy in the campus, school...

 

- Prepare for BYOD in your organization 

 

Read my complete curation about it here:

http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching?q=BYOD

 

 

===> Read and learn also about IT-Security, YES that is a MUST in 21st Century in Education, especially when using BYOD: <===

 

http://gustmees.wordpress.com/category/get-smart-with-5-minutes-tutorials/

 

 

Learn also about eCitizen, Digital Citizenship where Teachers should stay there as good example and knowing about their responsability:

 

http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching?tag=eCitizen

 

Responsability as eCitizen for the Government, be a good patriot and know how to defend your Government against Cyber-Attacks and Cyberwar, why and how?

 

http://gustmees.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/visual-it-securitypart2-your-computer-as-a-possible-cyber-weapon/

 

 

===> The above mentioned must be included in Education and especially when using BYOD, read these blogs and curated articles and you will understand that they are a MUST ;) <===
