BYOD is Authentic
The Positive Side to BYOD
The thinking behind BYOD: Familiarity equals efficiency.
The Shift: Less time teaching students how to use the device; more time facilitating and monitoring how they are using the device.
Equity: No matter the level of socioeconomic diversity, most students have a device to bring. Those that do not can use school purchased devices.
Money and Learning: Having a BYOD system in place frees up district funds that can be used for other programs. It is a more responsible use of district resources.
