Collaborative Technologies: Crossing the Device Divide
Raths, David
T.H.E. Journal, v40 n5 p9-13 May 2013
When school district leaders talk about the potential benefits of "bring your own device" (BYOD) programs, they often mention budget savings and promoting personalized mobile learning. They note that BYOD can expand the boundaries of learning beyond the classroom, however, not many of these leaders mention enhanced student collaboration as a benefit of BYOD. This is partly because when students come to class bearing devices on multiple platforms, sharing resources can get complicated. This, the fifth in a six-part monthly series examining how different technologies can help schools enhance collaboration among students, describes how Instructional technology leaders in BYOD schools and districts are working through issues in and around access to devices and shared curriculum resources to find new ways to help teachers foster collaboration. Previous installments to this series have covered social media, configurable furniture, interactive devices, and apps to make iPads collaborative.
