Why BYOD Makes Sense: Thinking Beyond a Standardized 1:1 | BYOD in the classroom | Scoop.it
I was recently asked, "Why are you giving the teachers choice of a laptop? Why not just go all in with one device?" My answer, simply stated, is that homogenization of any tool is never a good idea i

Derrick Schellenberg's curator insight, March 17, 2014 10:22 AM

An interesting and relevant article to our school, about BYOD.  In this case it sounds like the latest venture, relevant to the writer of the article, is allowing students to bring devices into the classroom; we are in a position where the expectation is that students will bring a device (at least one) into the classroom, and teachers are expected to use technology in curriculum delivery.

 

One of the central arguments of this piece is the idea of variety leading to creativity, to allow choice, and to not mandate the exact device.  While I agree with this idea I do believe that certain tools are suitable for certain purposes.  For productivity in terms of text creation, a laptop, followed by a netbook, may be the best tool.  For simple tasks such as quick surveys, reading, filming, etc. an iPad, an iPod, or other type of tablet, or small device, may be the best bet.

 

Allowing devices in the classroom is a great first step.  Having teachers design classes/courses/lessons around technology is another necessary step.  Moving from technological use to meaningful and authentic use of technology should come eventually.  Giving students a choice in what to bring and what products they can make to demonstrate their learning will allow them to show what they know in terms of content and technology, and the teacher (and the student's peers) can only benefit from this sharing.

A brief timeline containing the items that should occur in the year leading up to the implementation of a BYOD program. This article does a great job explaining exactly what big ideas need to be addressed and doesn't focus on the hardware side of implementation. I like that it includes the professional development that needs to occur.
