"Just a little reminder. BYOD in education refers to students bringing their own technology devices ( smartphones, tablets, and laptops. ) to school for educational uses. This was initially started by college students, but it soon spread to K-12 education. Schools that used to depend on government funds to provide technology that students would need for the school day , are now turning that responsibility to the parents by asking them to purchase the technology devices needed for schools, which, fortunately enough, most students actually own. This would cut down on schools' huge yearly technology expenditure.

BYOD, a new way enabled the teachers and students learning and communacation through internet . I think it will be a new trend in the future.It will provide the students more opportunity to learn whenever and wherever they want.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's curator insight, June 17, 2013 8:48 PM

BYOD indeed! Many schools have outdated technology and cannot afford to upgrade every 2-3 years.

Bring Your Own Technology Empowers Educators to Facilitate Learning

Bring Your Own Technology Empowers Educators to Facilitate Learning | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) | Scoop.it

As more students bring their own devices to school, Forsyth County Schools prepares teachers to facilitate learning and assess different kinds of work.Even before the initiative, teacher Jo Paget empowered her fourth-grade students to take charge of their learning at Coal Mountain Elementary. Before each lesson, she tells them the learning objective they're aiming for, and they continually assess themselves to see how they're doing.

"We need to take that time and we need to tell them before we teach them, 'This is what you're learning,'" Paget said.
