Study Examines Benefits and Constraints of BYOD Policies -- Campus Technology

Study Examines Benefits and Constraints of BYOD Policies -- Campus Technology | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it
A new study examines the affordances, or benefits, and constraints of instituting bring your own device (BYOD) policies in schools.
Ralph Springett's insight:

Ralph Springett's insight:
Begin your change process with an agreed 21 century learning and teaching model. This does not have to be set in stone - allow practice to inform the model over time. Support 21 century learning and teaching practice: provide learner and teacher support; resource rich media production; integrate online learning platforms; communicate. Provide devices equitably: do NOT introduce a voluntary BYOD policy.
As an institution leader none of this should be a surprise. If it is  - get professional help.
