The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | BYOD | Scoop.it

"As children across the nation return to school, many are going armed with their own computational tools. From laptops to tablets and smartphones, schools and universities across the globe are testing out a more dynamic learning environment, where students bring and use their choice of technologically assistive devices in the classroom. Despite the obvious benefits, the influx of mobile technology in educational systems has also provoked backlash from parents and teachers alike, similar to the BYOD backlash witnessed within enterprise IT departments in the past few years.

 

Educational institutions are ultimately presented two options: adopt a BYOD program, embracing the technology trend, encouraging student participation, and expanding curriculum to include BYOD-driven topics, or to impose of a BYOD policy, setting rules to govern the presence and practice of these potentially disruptive devices."

Interesting that some Silicon Valley inventors of Apple I-pad  choose to send their children to Waldorf Schools that do not embrace computers. Why? The outcomes of hours spent in front of computer screens for developing brains has not been identified clearly in terms of long term effects. I believe that a good teacher who empowers her students to learn can do so without technology, I am speaking here of elementary schools where most students are gaining literacy that can be applied in any medium a little later. Let's restrict their use in kindergartens and primary schools to be on the safe side.

Cultivating a Learning Community with BYOT - BYOT Network

Cultivating a Learning Community with BYOT - BYOT Network | BYOD | Scoop.it

"A goal of the BYOT classroom is to develop resilient students who own the learning process, just as they own their personal technology tools.  Resiliency is the ability to overcome challenges and bounce back, and it is essential to a person’s long term success and happiness.  One way to develop resiliency is to cultivate a learning community or a community of practice that includes the teacher as well as the students."

BYOD: The Benefits of Embracing Diversity

BYOD: The Benefits of Embracing Diversity | BYOD | Scoop.it

There is something powerful about allowing students to use their own devices in the classroom. These are the devices they use to navigate the world. They are also the devices they are most comfortable with. Both of those factors translate into more meaningful, relevant and engaged learning.

This is very interesting! I've never considered this idea! I would like to see some studies that prove this article right, however. I wonder why this is encouraged in most schools? I would love to hear more about this! 

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 13, 2013 2:33 AM

Instead of isolating themselves with their devices, students lean in and collaborate using the devices available. The trick is to design learning opportunities that encourage conversation and collaboration. This approach is more social and engaging for students anyway and allows teachers to leverage the collective intelligence in the room.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 16, 2013 4:12 PM

I think this is a great idea. We truly are moving into an era where technology is taking over and transforming our lives. The way we work and communicate are totally technological based. Teachers need to embrace this new era of technology, we are moving forward and they need to get with it or they will fall behind.
