Have you set up a BYOD program at your school? Wondering how to manage having students bring their own device to school. Here are 4 models of BYOD:
> Ready-to-Use Model
> Guided Model
> Local Use Only Model
> Personal Goals Model
I understand why the author, David Ashby, is sharing these 4 models. In most schools, students are still directed what to do, when to do something, and how to do it. I agree with the author "There are many missed opportunities to show students how the tools they already have can help them in their studies."
We are so used to "school" and students obeying what the teacher tells them to do. This is the paradigm that has been set up for over 100 years. To move to the Personal Goals Model, teachers and students need to develop trust, respect, and understanding that the device is just another tool to help them learn and access information.
