Five Components to Consider for BYOT/BYOD
Ackerman, Amy S.; Krupp, Melissa L.
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (Madrid, Spain, Oct 19-21, 2012)
Although school budgets have plummeted due to federal and state funding reductions, adopting Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT), may address monetary tightening while simultaneously infusing 21st century learning. Implementing BYOT may provide real, rigorous, and relevant learning for the students while posing higher-order thinking questions from the teacher. This paper expands Williard's Pyramid (Ullman, 2011) by proposing five BYOT components with descriptions, examples, and recommendations within each. The five components are security, stakeholders, policies, professional development, and financial planning. The paper closes with future predictions as well as words of caution regarding BYOT initiatives.
