BYOD is the "most radical shift" in the workplace since the PC - 2 views

  •  
    Last year, research firm Gartner heralded the bring-your-own-device, or BYOD, phenomenon as the "most radical shift in enterprise client computing since the introduction of the PC." Such headlines often smack of hyperbole but so far, BYOD has lived up to expectations. If we are preparing students for the world of work, BYOD has to be part of that. Companies are experiencing the same challenges that schools are.

    I was somewhat taken aback by the interest in my last blog posting entitled "The first ever BYOD (not BYOT) class I taught…" I have now analyzed it against a piece by Earnie Kramer called "Thinking about embracing Bring Your Own Device in your school?"

    This is a narrative account with some reflection on the first time I used "Bring Your Own Device" BYOD in Class - I touch on the difference with BYOT, where Device is replaced by Technology. The class is Irish First-year - Seventh Grade USA? Students aged about 13.

BYOD - Worst Idea of the 21st Century? : Stager-to-Go - 127 views

  •  
    Schools and school districts who have come to the personal computing party decades late now have conjured a cheap less-empowering way to produce an illusion of modernity. They call it "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) or "Bring Your Own Technology" (BYOT) and it's a terribly reckless idea for the following reasons.

  • A pre-pilot will start on 1 January 2012. Pre-pilot means that it will be small and there will be modest human intervention just to see children's reactions in order to better design the real, hands-off, dropping-out-of-the-sky format.

    Can tablet computers "parachuted" into remote areas transform childhood learning, asks Nicholas Negroponte .. One Laptop per Child (OLPC), even after giving out nearly 3 million laptops, is still criticised along the following lines: "Negroponte believes that you can give a child a laptop and walk away."

I used it for all kinds of projects, and I always had it with me just in case someone needed to pry something open or tighten something down. Today I carry a more modern multipurpose tool-the smartphone.
