This would cut down on schools' huge yearly technology expenditure.

BYOD, a new way enabled the teachers and students learning and communacation through internet . I think it will be a new trend in the future.It will provide the students more opportunity to learn whenever and wherever they want.

BYOD indeed! Many schools have outdated technology and cannot afford to upgrade every 2-3 years.
