Would this be a help or hinderance? Is it fair to place the financial pressure or having to purchase a new device for their kids on the parents? 

Carolyn Wiberg's curator insight, May 13, 2013 7:51 AM

My students are generally more connected through social media than I. They are blogging and tweeting about their experiences. Shouldn't I be motivating them to collaborate with the classmates via the same technologies? By doing so, I might help them use every spare moment in the day and draw upon every social connection.

7 Myths About BYOD Debunked -- THE Journal

Fortunately, today’s students are standing up, speaking out, and, in many cases, using the technology and websites they do not have access to in school to do so. It’s time to listen to the students (and many of their parents and teachers) and shed light on misconceptions by dispelling common myths about bringing your own device (BYOD) to school. When we do, we can begin to move past the ignorance and toward breaking the ban.

Teaching Generation Text! Using Cell Phones to Enhance Learning: Teaching Cell Phone Etiquette (including the Cell Phone Manners Lesson Plan!)

Educators often complain that cell phones are a distraction in class, but how much time have they really devoted to discussing proper etiquette?

His course, Designing Liberation Technologies, brings small interdisciplinary teams of Stanford students together with students from the University of Nairobi and local NGOs to design new uses of mobile platforms for promoting human development in Nairobi’s informal settlements.

Making Progress

Making Progress | Mobile Learning with Bring Your Own Devices | Scoop.it
There is a growing recognition on the part of teachers, education support professionals, school administrators, and prominent educational experts that emerging digital technologies are here to stay and, when used properly, can offer substantial educational benefits. These benefits, however, are not without some risks. Recent abuses of social media have prompted a number of state legislatures and boards of education to consider enacting legislation or policies to respond to concerns about the use of digital media to harass, bully, or make inappropriate sexual contact with children. Before steps are taken to impose limits on the use of social media and mobile technologies in schools, policymakers and educators need to consider the consequences for learning that such restrictions would produce. In this document, we argue that such action should carefully consider the advantages of social media for learning and that these guidelines for responsible use bring media into mentored environments where they can be safely explored and shared.
