Why BYOD, Not Banning Cell Phones, Is the Answer -- THE Journal

Why BYOD, Not Banning Cell Phones, Is the Answer -- THE Journal | Information I Want to Keep | Scoop.it

Banning is not the answer. Administrators need policies for today's students and teachers need to update outdated practices. We're well into the 21st century and it's time for schools to encourage educators to start using methods that will prepare students for their future rather than relying on the comfortable policies and methods of the past.

EdTechSteve Blog: Our BYOD Policy and Process

EdTechSteve Blog: Our BYOD Policy and Process | Information I Want to Keep | Scoop.it

Our school is in the midst of piloting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) with students. I like the way we've done the pilot- we basically opened it up for students before creating an official policy. By doing this, we were able to see problems or issues come up naturally. Instead of trying to guess and overthink all the potential dangers, we just dove in and dealt with reality. If your school is moving in the BYOD direction, I highly recommend doing it this way.
