The process to complete

BYOD in my view is an extension of what you already have in school. It is just that the students are able to increase the amount of time they can have access to one computer/tablet for themselves.

My principal was saying that a school had done a two year process to get BYOD in place, I believe this is unrealistic. I was wondering what others had done? Personally I think a term of looking at it, putting a policy in place and having a community consultation at the end would surfice.

One point he made was that there was problems with what they could access on their tablets... I don't think this is relevant as we already have laptops and the internet access would be the same on them as they would be for anyone who had BYOD.

 

Any thoughts on this process as I am down to two computers in my class and want the BYOD to go ahead asap as I have 4-6 students who will be able to bring their own devices in.

    It's so difficult when you want to move forward and get stuck into things and by the sound of it, that is where you are at?  We are considering BYOD and beginning on our e-learning framework journey.  I have and take issue with time frames like this, however, there must be robust policy in place around what happens if things go wrong..such as .... devices breaking or damaged etc.  Find the balance but by all means communicate your intentions and best of luck.
