Bring Your Own Device (or Technology): New Opportunities, New Challenges in K-12 Education


Screen shot 2014-01-24 at 1.52.40 PMBYOD (or BYOT) stands for Bring Your Own Device (or Technology). For many educators, it is an acronym that may sound vaguely familiar. As an educational idea in classrooms or libraries, it may lead to more questions than answers. BYOD is one of many strategies that districts are using to promote 21st Century Skills, foster collaboration and engage students at the point of instruction.  In this webinar for the Digital Decisions for Collaborative Learning community, presenter Dino Miele, Chief Information Officer at the District School Board of Niagara, discussed the convergence of 4 forces that will affect the educational ecosystem in the next 3 years: social, information, cloud and mobile. Dino presented effective strategies, models, and frameworks that are needed in order to have a sustainable mobile environment in our classrooms and libraries. BYOD can help in creating an open, collaborative and dynamic environment with instructional technology at the point of instruction.
