To BYOD or not to BYOD
The iPad revolution has turned into a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) revolution. Many schools are now setting up their networks, policies and curriculum to cater for students to be able to bring in the device that best suits their learning style whether it be an iPad or Android tablet, a MacBook or Netbook – or even a smart phone. What impact is this having on the way we teach? Is this the catalyst that will finally force every teacher to take a modern 21st Century approach to learning and teaching? What are the cybersafety implications?
It is an interesting time to be involved in education!
