20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools

20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools | Teaching Tools Today | 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."


Via John Evans
Ness Crouch's insight:

Let's make learning student centred. It's really important that students have access to the web and as we know many schools do not have the funds to provide devices one to one. A solution is BYOD but obviously we need to ensure that there are protocol around the use and expectations of being a good digital citizen. 

more...
Alan Ovens's comment, April 4, 2013 4:18 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 6:40 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 8:02 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.
