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.

    Thanks heaps, was hoping sooner than later, but I know there are realities. Having two computers in your class can get quite frustrating when ICT can be used as a fantastic tool. I have started to use Puppet Pals 2 in the class using my iPad, but would be cool if BYOD allowed for groups to use it all at one time rather than just one select group.
