10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic

10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

Posted by Katie Lapi

 

"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 smartphonesfrom home and to use them in the classroom and share them with other students.

 

"It’s a promising idea, especially for schools that don’t have big tech budgets, but it has met with some criticism from those who don’t think that it’s a viable long-term or truly budget-conscious decision.

 

"Whether that’s the case is yet to be seen, but these stories of schools that have tried out BYOD programs seem to be largely positive, allowing educators and students to embrace technology in learning regardless of the limited resources they may have at hand."

BYOD in the 21st Century - A Look at the Issues with a Great Video | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

Whenever schools look at BYOD (or BYOT) there are pros and cons. This post provides links to a number of resources that discuss the advantages and limitations and includes an excellent (and enjoyable) short video that presents a quick pedagogical look at BYOD in the 21st century. Well worth watching in my opinion.

Embracing BYOD Mobile challenge

Embracing BYOD Mobile challenge | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it
Businesses may no longer be able to turn away employees who want to bring their smartphones and tablets to work, and connect to the corporate network.

 

Even the government acknowledges that it can't prevent the use of personal devices for work-related functions, reports Marcos Colón.

 

With more than 60,000 employees, Cisco Systems has embraced the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon, defined as the burgeoning penetration of personal smartphones, tablets and laptops into the workplace.

 

Gust MEES: While using BYOD and Social Media, teachers need to have knowledge of basic IT-Security (they must learn it...)! It's NOT ONLY the IT-Admin's and Technical Coordinator's role! This basic knowledge they should share with their learners to make the community stronger for a more secure Internet...

 

=============================================

Wer A sagt, muss auch B sagen. (Plattdeutsche Variante: De A seggt, mut ok B seggen")


Translation: If you say A, you have to say B as well.


===> Meaning: No half-assed evading or cherry picking. <===


Meaning: If you want or assert A and it turns out to involve B, you have to put up with B too.


Meaning: Follow through [don't wimp out]


Similar: "In for a penny, in for a pound."
