  • responsible use policies, parent and/or student agreements, and lessons about safety/etiquette.

One-to-One or BYOD? Districts Explain Thinking Behind Student Computing Initiatives | E... - 0 views

  • students,
  • complete a training session with their parents and sign an acceptable-use policy before they can use their ­personal devices to connect to the school's wireless ­network
  • Afterward, each student receives a sticker ­indicating that his or her device is wireless-certified.

  • big downfall of BYOD programs, he explains, is that school officials have no control over whether ­students actually will bring their devices to class:
  • expanding each school's media center hours

    I wonder if ASF has taken any of these steps to ensure appropriate BYOD policies for next school year? Imp to have a platform so launching will be successful and all steps are in order rather than improvised.

  • 50 resources for iPad use in the classroom

    By Charlie Osborne | May 3, 2012, 6:00am PDT

    The transition to the more extensive use of technology in classrooms across the West has resulted in the integration of bring your own device (BYOD) schemes, equipping students with netbooks and tablet computers, and lessons that use social media & online services.

    Gesture-based technology is on the rise; according to the latest NMC Horizon Report, gesture-based technological models will become more readily integrated as a method of learning within the next few years.

    The iPhone, iPad, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect technology are examples of these kinds of developments, and in particular, resources for Apple products in education are becoming widely available online.

    For teachers, some of which are just beginning to use tablets and mobile devices in class, these resources can be invaluable in promoting more interactive classrooms and understanding how best to use and control such products. Below is a collection of tutorials, lesson plans and applications for educators to utilize.

Texting 1, 2, 3: Schools Test 'Bring Your Own Technology' Programs | Techland | TIME.com - 1 views

  • As protesters took to the streets yesterday to protest the inequality of wealth, two computer scientists in Portland, Oregon are protesting the inequality of resources in schools.
  • t Celly, a text-messaging service that teachers and students can use to make classwork more fun and engaging
  • Celly is part of a larger national trend in schools known as “Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT),” in which students are allowed to bring their mobile devices to class. Advocates argue that if young people are already glued to them, then teachers and principals should come up with educational uses for them

  • “We wanted to make a platform that could be used by all kids, teens, and college students and that cuts across demographics,” Okamoto says. “You don’t just have to have iPads or live in a very wealthy school district.”
  • ach school or class can create a group for themselves called a “cell” that users may access straight from their phone, email, or the Internet. They text to personal screen names, and to prevent cyber-bullying or inappropriate conduct, they cannot see each other’s numbers.
  • Still, thanks to BYOT, high school is not so bad after all,
  • “The shy kids don’t like to talk during regular group discussions, but they’re really active on Celly,” he says.
  • But experts say providing technology is the responsibility of schools, not parents.
  • “BYOT is pushing costs that should be paid by federal, state, or city governments to the families, like asking them to pay for the amount of bandwidth students need to do their work
  • Educational consultant Gary Stager agrees, arguing that BYOT just makes have-nots feel worse.  “The rationale for school uniforms, for putting kids in matching plaid polyester, is so poor kids don’t feel bad and aren’t stigmatized in the classroom.  BYOT is another form of stigmatizing kids,” he says.

      Interesting article about the BYOT and the Celly network.   I love the idea of the Celly network, and think ASF should look into it. 
      This article resonates with me because it touched upon one argument against BYOT, which is simply that such a program separates the "haves" from the "have nots".
