With the convergence of widespread broadband and the growth of powerful, platform independent web based tools BYOD has finally arrived as an effective educational alternative to other plans that require expensive purchasing and maintenance.

BYOT: No Internet Access, No Problem Posted by Shelly Terrell on Wednesday, April 3rd 2013 Part of the Mobile Learning Series! “The principle goal of education in schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.” ~ Jean Piaget

Learn with Nintendo DSi Although I continue to see additional iOS devices, iPods and iPads, in the hands of students in the elementary grades, one of the most popular technology devices continues to be the Nintendo DS and DSi. In fact, all Nintendo DS models combined have made it the best selling handheld game console. These handhelds are often a child’s first foray into personal technology, and they can be utilized effectively as learning tools within the BYOT classroom.

Learn BYOD policy best practices from templates When drafting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, you might be tempted to cut and paste from a template you find online. However, BYOD policies aren't one size fits all. You should think of BYOD policy templates as the starting point for your creation process. How to Grow a Blog  Last month, in preparation for my K12Online Conference presentation , I re-read Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Good Business. Leadership, Flow, and the Making of Meaning . In it, he states that the experience of flow – when the person is totally immersed in an activity and genuinely enjoying the moment – comes from “the steps one takes toward attaining a goal, not from actually reaching it.”

Mobile Learning: 50+ Resources & Tips I believe mobile devices will transform education. This is why I created a free ebook, Effective Mobile Learning: 50+ Quick Tips & Resources with helpful tips and several resources to help support this trend. One reason is because mobile devices are designed in a way that forces the teacher to give control to the learner. When we equip a classroom with iPads, iPods, small tablets, or cellphones the learning is literally put in the hands of the students. The teacher has to facilitate and walk around the room to manage the learning. Below are a list of 50+ Mobile Learning resources & growing!

Android Resources & Apps A colleague asked if I could put together a list of some great Android apps for education and some great Android resources for a presentation he is doing on the Kindle Fire. Here's what I came up with:Great Android Apps for Education and Resources for Android Comparison to iPadEvery app I want or need is available on Android. For the most part the functionality and features are the same between Android and iPad versions. Sometimes the iPad version has more features, sometimes the Android version does. In general, there isn’t much difference. Educational Leadership:Students Who Challenge Us:On Board with BYOD Should students bring their own personal technologies to school and use them for learning? Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) plans, also known as Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) plans, have been gaining acceptance among an increasing number of schools—including, perhaps, yours. Several factors are contributing to the popularity of encouraging students to bring their own personal technologies to school and use them for learning. These are just a few:

Lights, Camera . . . Engagement! Three Great Tools for Classroom Video How many times have you thought to yourself, "In what way can I spice up this unit and make it student-centered?" One great way is to let your students be creative using video. With all the tools and technology available, making videos is easier than ever for you and your students. BYOT: The hidden messages I have been very fortunate to see Bring Your Own Technology — BYOT — in action in schools in various countries, with learners of various economic backgrounds. While teaching in the U.S., Germany, Greece, Slovenia and Croatia, I used BYOT to teach my learners with technology when little to no technology was available to us. I have integrated BYOT with learners from the ages of 4 to 80 who came from various economic situations.
