There’s nothing like seeing the name of your school scroll across the bottom of the TV screen when the snow starts to fall outside.  It means a day of sledding and hot chocolate!  But, not anymore.  In many states, schools are opting for e-Learning as a way of keeping up…

BYOD

I remember vividly the joy and excitement of rolling out one of the first large scale 1 to 1 programs using tablets in our region of the country. We had spent two years planning, piloting, researching, holding public forums, and building a general excitement around the “roll out”. We challenged teachers to change the way they think about content delivery and assessment, teaching them the skills needed to give students 24/7 access to content by leveraging our LMS and creating a hybrid “flipped” classroom. We used the implementation as a change agent to reassess how teaching and learning were occurring in our classrooms.

Today we work with 1 to 1 and BYOD programs across the country and have found that they are all unique in their organization, execution, and measures of success. However, I have noticed a growing trend of schools claiming that they have a BYOD initiative, but upon further examination – they aren’t really a program at all. The school has just made the technological leap to compete with McDonalds, Starbucks, and your local hotel, in allowing students to connect their devices to the network.
