BYOD

‘Bring Your Own Devices’ is a concept being adopted by workplaces and in educational settings. It was brought up in one of our forums by one of my classmates, Mike Ralph. Here is a video by the Peel District School Board, who have started implementing BYOD into their classrooms. I can see the advantages of this concept because of the fact that you will be most comfortable using a device you own. Because most students (and parents) prefer to have the most current devices, it helps institutions by not having to purchase the latest technologies for entire classrooms frequently. My concern in the forum was for the students that didn’t possess the latest device or didn’t own a device at all. After watching the video, I was more comfortable seeing that the school would provide devices for those who chose not to bring their own. Hope you enjoy the video!
