The do's and don'ts of beefing up your wireless network to handle the bring-your-own-device movement.
T.H.E. Journal asked five K-12 technology leaders from all over the United States to describe the paths they took to BYOD, the preparations they made, the lessons they learned, and the most important questions they asked vendors--or wish they'd asked.

BYOT? Bring it on
An international forum for all schools seeking to make the best use of BYOT.
All the case study schools we examined in the UK, US, Australia, and NZ that had normalised the use of the digital in the classroom were moving naturally to a model of BYOT.
In researching and writing BYOT, one of the first international studies of BYOT in schools, what struck us was the reality that in time every school in a Western democracy will adopt some type of BYOT, and that it is already apparent this development will have a profound impact.

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."

Bring Your Own Vs. School Provided 1:1 Laptops
http://www.k12converge.com/?p=832
“Bring Your Own” Vs. “School Provided” 1:1 Laptops
In my experience, either program could work at a school, but the determining factors are school culture and the targeted objectives of the program.
The downside of school-provided laptops is that students lose the challenge and freedom of choice, and they also lose the full personal and academic machine experience (since there would always be some limits as to what could be done with a school-managed machine even if they are local admins), and of course the loss of access over the summer.
So, the benefits of fully achieving the more focused/limited goals of the true “bring your own” program are not to be underestimated.

BYOD or 1:1 Computing in K-12?
http://blogs.cisco.com/education/byod-11-computing-in-k-12-the-ctos-weigh-in/
BYOD or 1:1 Computing in K-12? The CTO’s Weigh In…
On the topic of devices, we asked two of our leading K-12 Chief Technology Officer (CTO) customers to give us their opinions. BYOD? 1:1? What’s the better course to pursue? The answer would make Nike proud. While both noted device and equity issues one way or another, all said simply” “Just do it!”. What’s even more interesting – it wasn’t actually all about the device.
Both CTO’s noted that financially, 1:1 computing can more easily happen in smaller (<6,000 students) level school districts where the investments, deployments and training can be more easily controlled and managed. Each noted the success of their own path, citing the undeniably strong test scores backing up their rollouts, and each indicated the “time is now” to begin driving these plans.

It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT

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.
