BYOD: Power Up!

AETC 2015

Students use their mobile devices everyday to access information, communicate with friends and family, listen to music, and so much more. Why not allow those devices to be used at school to transform teaching and learning? Launching and implementing a successful BYOD initiative is a challenging undertaking. Participants will experience activities that can easily be replicated in multiple subject areas and grade levels.

Give Students A Choice

We don't give students a set of watercolors and tell them to color everything blue. Yet, we frequently limit their options when it comes to showing us what they have learned.


BYOD and 1:1 classrooms can provide teachers the flexibility to allow their students choices when assigning projects. Every student may not have the same apps as their classmates, so instead of requiring the students to use a particular app or website, why not give them a choice? You will find that student engagement and creativity will increase when students are given the freedom to use different tools to deliver content.
