Getting Started With “Bring Your Own Device” to School

By Steve 0 Comments July 26, 2011

For the last few months, the “Bring Your Own Device” concept has become quite popular and many school are now adopting it. This idea allows students to bring their own computer to school (laptop, tablet, smartphone) to use for learning purposes. In theory it promises to save money while keeping students engaged because they’re learning in a way that is already familiar to them.

While it is too early to determine if the concept is working, we want you to judge for yourself. We’ve gathered interesting resources and posted them below to help you get started with BYOD.
