What Is BYOD And Why You Should Know

SUREN on July 31, 2013

As a parent or IT administrator, you should be familiar with BYOD, also called BYOT. If you don't, it is time to catch up before it catches up with you. Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) or Device (BYOD) means, literally, that you bring your personal laptop, smartphone or tablet to use in a secure environment like a school or business. 

BYOD In K-12 Schools

The annual Speak Up survey's 2012 report shows a dramatic shift in the acceptance of the use of instructional technology for learning. According to the report, "in just one-year from 2011 to 2012, districts piloting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach increased by 47 percent." Increasing use of mobile devices in the general population, common core standards, shrinking budgets, and evidence of impact on student outcomes are driving this change.

Coming Soon To Schools Near You!

A strong attitude change is seen among principals and administrators, outstripped by an even stronger majority of parents, and lead by overwhelming support from teachers! If you haven't seen such an initiative at your school, you will soon. You may even want to arm yourself with the report and talk to your school administration or parent-teacher organization right away!
