As a society, we talk about the importance of leaders in all walks of life, but when it comes to our classrooms, many of us seem to want to empower the followers while executing the sages when the former do poorly on standardized tests.

BYOD Is Shortest Path To Student-Centered Learning

BYOD Is Shortest Path To Student-Centered Learning | Science Education | Scoop.it

"By its very nature, BYOD is authentic. As students bring their own devices—and with them, their own apps, accounts, and tech-use patterns—what is is naturally revealed, for better or for worse. With the mounting (and completely logical) demand for better technology in classrooms, BYOD is one response to that pressure. Why? BYOD gives students a chance."

"This is an interesting article I have just found in the local paper. A well regarded school is shifting from textbook into eBooks. The preferred option, even though it is a BYOD program, is iPads. The functionality of interactive media wins over the traditional mediums.

 

The iPads do lend themselves very well to science. My daughter uses her iPad all the time, particularly to record demonstrations and experiments in class. When the videos and images are then linked to science reports developed in pages, you have a very comprehensive product."
