Had a good discussion about introducing BYOD in our school. I think it is absolutely necessary as I am certainly feeling that I want more ICT equipment in class but there is simply not feasible to further purchase school-owned equipment. BYOD is a natural progression.
There are so many questions to be answered in introducing a policy such as this into our community. While it makes it so much easier to stipulate a device, the reality is that the devices we want are expensive and that may have repercussions for families. Introducing this needs to be done in a well thought out manner and cannot be rushed through. So many things to consider...
I am excited about the eBytes sessions planned for this term. I think very short, focussed sessions for those who are interested will help to boost the attitude to ICT again - bring back the love!
- Have a look at more resources from other schools using BYOD
- Review Youtube Capture app and have resources for Week 2
