New devices, new benefits, new challenges

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD): Educational Benefits

Why should we allow students to bring in their own device? Based on money alone, a typical smart-phone or tablet can cost around £300. Multiply this by 120 students and you have £36,000 worth of ICT sitting in pockets and bags. Instead of banning these devices from the classroom, wouldn't it be great to use them as a curriculum resource?

The added benefits are:

  • Make learning fun and more interactive
  • Reduce the cost and frequency of ICT room updates
  • Make ICT core to students, both during school and at home
  • Teach students to make use of whatever device they have available
  • Promote independent learning
