BYOD to School - A whitepaper

Bruce Dixon (from the Anytime, Anywhere Learning Foundation) and Sean Tierney (from the worldwide Microsoft Partners in Learning programme) have both been passionate advocates for 1:1 learning programmes for many years, and have just published their first 'Bring Your Own Device for schools' whitepaper. The aim is to examine the potential deployment models from teaching, learning and IT management perspectives. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/education/archive/2012/08/15/microsoft-bring-your-own-device-in-schools-whitepaper.aspx

BYOD - 2013 Literature Review from NSWDEC

There is an extensive body of literature available on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). This review represents a reasonable and representative scan of the available literature. It should be noted that this reviewer was unable to locate any peer reviewed studies of BYOD in action, though the review does include published observations of the benefits and otherwise of BYOD programs. The literature can be divided into opinion pieces, discussions, school policies, reports, lessons learnt and guides to instituting BYOD programs. http://nswdecbyod.weebly.com/uploads/1/1/3/0/11303946/litrev_2013_final_2.pdf
