BYOD – Bring Your Own Device

The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and 1:1 movements are not new but both have been picking up steam over the past few years. While 1:1 requires school systems to supply enough technology for each student and keep them up to date, BYOD takes the burden off of the school system and taxpayers by relying on student-owned tech instead. This will make what students learn and how students learn more relevant to each of them, ensuring that they be college and career ready. Further, in areas where students are less likely to have their own devices (or unable to bring them to school), the school system can then be able to supply/support individual school needs to fill in the gaps. The following VoiceThread for BYOD in the Classroom presents the pros, cons, and strategies for implementing such a policy in a school near you.
