BYOD

BYOD | BYOD | Scoop.it
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) is gaining popularity in many schools as a way of increasing access to vital technology without the costly burden of purchasing a device for each student.  It acknowledges the reality that many students — even those in relatively low-income communities — have ready access to educationally-valuable technology that, until recently, they were forced to turn off when they entered the school building.
Don Passenant's insight:

This is a great guide for any school district that is going BYOD.

"Digital Distractions in the Classroom: Student Classroom Use of Digita" by Bernard McCoy

Digital devices such as smart phones, tablets, and laptop computers are important college classroom tools. They support student learning by providing access to information outside classroom walls. However, when used for non-class purposes, digital devices may interfere with classroom learning. A survey study asked college students to describe their behavior and perceptions regarding classroom use of digital devices for non-class purposes. The respondents included 777 students at six U.S. universities. The average respondent used a digital device for non-class purposes 10.93 times during a typical school day for activities including texting, social networking, and emailing. Most respondents did so to fight boredom, entertain themselves, and stay connected to the outside world. More than 80% of the respondents indicated such behavior caused them to pay less attention in the classroom and miss instruction. A majority of respondents favor policies governing digital device distractions in the classroom.
