Thoughts on BYOD in Schools

Wednesday, 04 September 2013   |   Creative Thinking

BYOD tabletThere has been a lot of interest lately around the concept of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).  The School system I work with is considering implementing this next year and there is currently a lot of discussion going on surrounding it.  In typical fashion, many are opposed to this, believe it is going to lead to the sky falling, giant ants attacking and general chaos left right and center.  I actually believe that BYOD presents many great opportunities.
