10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) With budgets tight, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without having to shell out for a device for each student. A solution for many has been to make classes BYOD (short for “bring your own device”), which allows students to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphones from home and to use them in the classroom and share them with other students. It’s a promising idea, especially for schools that don’t have big tech budgets, but it has met with some criticism from those who don’t think that it’s a viable long-term or truly budget-conscious decision.

Whether that’s the case is yet to be seen, but these stories of schools that have tried out BYOD programs seem to be largely positive, allowing educators and students to embrace technology in learning regardless of the limited resources they may have at hand. Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy This Florida college prep recently expanded its BYOD pilot program to include sixth through 12th grades. iPads in Education- Examples from the Classroom.

iPads in schools: 10 ideas to get it happening!

“Computers, in and of themselves, do very little to aid learning,” Gavriel Salomon of the University of Haifa and David Perkins of Harvard observed in 1996. Placing them in the classroom “does not automatically inspire teachers to rethink their teaching or students to adopt new modes of learning.” So wrote Michael Hilzik in in a recent Los Angeles Times article Who really benefits from putting high-tech gadgets in the classroom? More than once I’ve expressed my thinking on this topic. It is without a doubt, I feel, that the role of teachers will continue to retain relevancy in our schools. My thoughts concur totally with Salomon’s words. Does not automatically inspire teachers to rethink their teaching or students to adopt new modes of learning.”

Most definitely the approach is ambitious. Like this: Ktenkely (ktenkely) Kevin Biles (krbiles) Scott Meech (smeech) Tony Vincent (tonyvincent) Home.

Sixth grade Spanish has turned a new leaf in learning with today’s in-class lesson! Featured apps in use DRAGON DICTATION, TURBO COLLAGE, and EVERNOTE with website This week’s iPad in the classroom lesson had students taking iPad2’s around the library take first take pictures of activities they both like and don’t like to do. This lesson is so incredible in a myriad of ways that engages the student right from the beginning with the use of the iPad2 to take pictures rather than get started with the educational apps for the lesson.

Does Manhattan Beach Unified’s iPad pilot program represent the future of education? Kindergarten students at Grand View Elementary School use iPads two times a week. Photo by Alene Tchekmedyian Just before 8 a.m. one recent Tuesday, Andy Caine wheeled a waist-high cart into his second-floor history classroom at Mira Costa High School, as the Beach Boys’ “I Get Around” played faintly in the background.

On the syllabus for the day: the First Amendment. As the first period bell rang, Caine unlocked the cart. “Come and get ‘em,” Caine said to his class of seniors, and stood behind his podium, on which he’s pasted a sticker reading, “Think for yourself. The students put aside their pens and notebooks and lined up at the cart to pick up an unconventional tool that school districts across the nation have been implementing into classrooms. Each student grabbed an iPad and returned to his or her seat. A quarter of the pilot costs are grant funded, while the district supports the rest. Cut. Peggy Germain (pegzhere)
