BYOD and mobile learning

BYOD and mobile learning | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it

Welcome! Bring your own device (BYOD) is using the powerful computing devices that most students are now bringing to classes to enrich the learning experience. Also mobile learning (mLearning) allows students to access their courses, be creative and learn anywhere now. This topic explores both BYOD and mLearning opportunities for teaching staff and students.

 

This topic is curated by staff in Learning Environments at the University of Melbourne, along with invited colleagues.

We Need Cellphones In School Because They're Distracting - Looking Up

We Need Cellphones In School Because They're Distracting - Looking Up | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it
Cellphones in schools is a subject I’ve discussed at length before and one that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. It’s a bellweather issue, an issue that indicates clearly where you sit on the educational spectrum. Do schools teach students “the rules” or help students learn effectively?

Yes cell phones are distracting so they should be banned in school, but we need to keep them in school so that we can teach students how to regulate their use, so they are not distracted as adults
 
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 21, 2017 9:35 PM
A key question about digital tools is students learning to self-regulate their use. What if we gave students a cell phone break every 30 minutes?
Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, November 24, 2017 6:04 AM
It really is important for students to learn how to regulate their use of their phones. Where better than in school where they are using them anyway whether we like it or not.

Mobile phones will be banned in NSW primary schools from next year. | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it
Public primary schools in NSW will enforce a mobile phone ban from next year and high schools will have the option of signing up to the crackdown after a State Government review finds the devices lead to online bullying and distraction.
Peter Mellow's insight:
Don't people #ban what they don't understand? #Books Or know how to use/manage them effectively.

It's not the technology, it's how we use the technology.

Rules on Cellphone Use in Schools Varies Widely

Rules on Cellphone Use in Schools Varies Widely | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it

"While there is little national data on how school systems handle such issues, it appears that approaches vary widely. Some schools ban smartphones, while others allow them in hallways or during lunch periods, or actively incorporate them into instruction."

 

“I really don’t see a consensus,” said Elizabeth Englander, a professor at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts. “Nobody really knows what to do. I think everybody’s trying out different things and seeing how they work.”

Textbooks optional: What unbundling and BYOD mean for learning technology

Textbooks optional: What unbundling and BYOD mean for learning technology | BYOD and mobile learning | Scoop.it
The days of overhead projectors and chalkboards are behind us. Today’s educators are looking to Chromebooks, smartphones and maker spaces to enhance their teaching. Other tools going the way of the overhead projector? The traditional textbook and workbook combination, complete with a #2 pencil. As digital natives, today’s students have grown up with technology integrated into every aspect of their lives, and education is no exception.

When it comes to middle schools and high schools, the average classroom looks more like a typical startup office than the traditional classroom of the past. As part of the macro trend of unbundling education, teachers are delivering a modern, customized curriculum by curating content in the form of videos, online text, and apps–moving beyond the physical textbooks.

In response, students are also choosing the devices they want to use for learning, and why shouldn’t they? Similar to the age-old Apple vs. Android debate, students tend to have personal preferences about the devices they use for learning.
