Needs analysis in curriculum design as a process of uncovering the multiple stories and perspectives of students, teachers, parents, administrators, future employers, community members and other stakeholders.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Excellent Resources on BYOD for Teachers

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Excellent Resources on BYOD for Teachers | News and Ideas for Educators | Scoop.it

Mobile technology is making explosive growth into our schools and classrooms.There is now a growing trend towards taking advantage of mobile devices to inspire learning and promote students engagement, but the problem is that school districts can not cover the costs of these devices and to provide every student with a gadget would be out of their affordability particularly with the shrinking budgets being allocated for high tech materials.However, several initiatives have been taken to counter this financial block facing the implementation of mobile technology in classroom  and one of these initiatives is called BYOD ( Bring Your Own Device).
