BYOD should be avoided https://9to5mac.com/2018/09/08/making-the-grade-heres-why-byod-should-be-avoided/ BYOD should be avoided, and here are three reasons why
If you are around the K–12 technology scene at all, there is no doubt one term that you’ve heard of: BYOD. It stands for bring your own device. It means that the school’s technology program allows students to bring a device to school, put it on the school’s Wi-Fi network, and use it to do their classwork.
11 Sample Education BYOT Policies https://bit.ly/176zFpz 11 Sample Education BYOT Policies To Help You Create Your Own
We’re putting together some research for some upcoming BYOT policy content, and in the course of doing so found many existing policies enlightening.
For starters, it is clear that some districts were more open-minded entering their BYOT programs than others. Many “policies” (not included below) were really more of a set of rules and consequences for breaking the rules than they were a supporting framework for teachers and students.

BYOD Case Study: George Spencer Academy https://bit.ly/10NogaR BYOD Case Study: George Spencer Academy
George Spencer Academy is a mixed secondary school in Nottingham, England, with 1350 students aged 11-18.
The school decided to go down the BYOD road in order to be able to explore the potential of personal devices without incurring costs of purchase, training or technical support.
The idea also fits very well with the school’s vision, which is concerned with giving a personalised learning experience to all students.
BYOD Case Study: Les Quennevais School https://bit.ly/10NnM4r BYOD Case Study: Les Quennevais School
Les Quennevais School, or LQS, is an 11-16 secondary school in Jersey, with 785 students on roll. It is situated in a suburban, mixed catchment, area on the west of the island.
There were three reasons that the school decided on a BYOD approach.
BYOD Case Study: St Crispin’s School https://bit.ly/10NnhY7 BYOD Case Study: St Crispin’s School
St Crispin’s School is a slightly larger-than-average secondary school serving the town of Wokingham, England. An 11-18 school, it has 1102 students. The number of students with special education needs is about average, whilst the proportion of students from ethnic minority backgrounds is below average.
At present, BYOD is going on in the form of a trial for Sixth Form (ie senior) students. Although the trial was due to end in July 2012,
BYOD Case Study: The Arnewood School Academy https://bit.ly/10NmI0o BYOD Case Study: The Arnewood School Academy
The Arnewood School Academy is a secondary school in the New Forest town of New Milton, in Hampshire, England. An 11-18 school, it has a total student population of 1200, including 240 in the Sixth Form.
Interestingly, the school has only recently started to adopt, or at least consider, a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. However, that bald statement belies the amount of groundwork and, if you like, ethos, that has supported this toe-dipping into unknown waters.
BYOD Case Study: Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital https://bit.ly/10NmfLO BYOD Case Study: Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital
The Children’s Hospital School is a Foundation Special School located on two sites, one at Great Ormond Street Hospital and the other at University College Hospital. Situated in central London, the school has an average roll of between 130 - 140 students aged 5-18, many of whom are long stay or recurring patients.
From the school’s point of view, the potential benefits of implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scheme are that patients are familiar with their own technology, software and devices, some of which may be very specific to their particular learning need and requirements.
BYOD Case Study: Sheffield High School https://bit.ly/10NlUsv BYOD Case Study: Sheffield High School
Sheffield High School is a private girls’ all-through school, ie ages 4-18, in the urban setting of Sheffield, England. It has around 1000 pupils.
The school makes for an interesting case study in that it has not yet actually implemented a BYOD programme. The groundwork has been laid, with the school working with its parent organisation, the Girls Day School Trust, to ensure that its networking infrastructure is robust enough to support the intended developments.
BYOD Case Study: Wildern School https://bit.ly/10Nlu5l BYOD Case Study: Wildern School
Located in a suburb just outside Southampton, England, Wildern is an 11-16 secondary academy with just over 1850 students, which is quite large by English standards.
Wildern School has partially implemented Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD. Students may bring their own devices in as long as the teacher and head of department concerned have agreed that phones and other devices would be useful in a particular lesson.
The school finds BYOD an attractive proposition because of its inherent flexibility and, of course, personalisation. But what really stands out about Wildern is the prime instigators of this development: the students.
BYOD Case Study: Tideway School https://bit.ly/10NkXAo BYOD Case Study: Tideway School
Tideway School is situated in the town of Newhaven in East Sussex, England. With around 600 students on roll, it is smaller than the average secondary school, but has a higher than average proportion of pupils with special educational needs, or who are entitled to free school meals.
In late 2011 the issue of mobile technologies and their use in school began to be discussed at a senior leadership team level.
However, the school resisted the temptation to race headlong into improving the infrastructure in order to allow students to use their own devices to access lesson and learning resources, because the benefits of doing so in terms of either pedagogy or learning gains were not self-evident.
Challenging the Model of 1:1 with BYOD https://www.edutopia.org/blog/challenging-one-to-one-model-amanda-paquette Challenging the Model of 1:1 with BYOD
In 2012 my school district in Vermont ventured into a sort-of BYOD/1:1 hybrid program. We realized the importance of allowing our students access to technology to enhance their learning, but the infrastructure wasn't in place to tackle a traditional BYOD. And we, like many if not all schools, were also constrained by budgets, so a traditional 1:1, where each student receives the same device, was also out of reach.

One-to-One or BYOD? https://bit.ly/HZ3lJm One-to-One or BYOD? Districts Explain Thinking Behind Student Computing Initiatives
Edina Public Schools had concerns about the economic feasibility of one-to-one computing over the long term, so the nine-school Minnesota district is pursuing what it considers to be the next best alternative: allowing students to bring their own mobile devices to school.
"One-to-one computing is financially unsustainable, so we stepped back and looked at it differently," says Steve Buettner, who proposed a "bring your own device" (BYOD) initiative during the 2009–2010 school year when he became the district's director of media and technology services. "It's the idea of harnessing the same tool that students use for social interaction with their peers and using it as an educational tool."
It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT http://esheninger.blogspot.com/2012/01/it-is-time-for-schools-to-seriously.html It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT
A Principal's Reflections
We launched our BYOT program at New Milford High School this past September after just piloting it with the senior class last spring.
There have been many lessons learned from this journey, the most important being that the students have greatly appreciated this shift.
Policies have been developed for students to bring in their own computing devices, a ban on cell phone use during non-instructional time has been lifted, and educational programs have been put in place to teach our students about digital citizenship, responsibility, and footprints.
