Bring Your Own Device: Parental Guidance (PG) Suggested
Kiger, Derick; Herro, Dani
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v59 n5 p51-61 Sep 2015
Educators are incorporating students' mobile devices into the schooling experience via Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. This is advantageous for many reasons, most notably, improving access to Internet resources and digital tools in support of teaching and learning. Obtaining parental support is key to BYOD success. Therefore, this study examined variables associated with a parent's decision to allow their child to bring personal technology devices to school for educational purposes. Parental guidance regarding BYOD implementation also was solicited. Results showed most parents permitted their child to BYOD. Significant BYOD predictors included the student's home mobile technology index score (+), overall school rating (+), school technology rating (-), and whether the student was at the intermediate/high school level. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
