Goals of BYOD

The goal of a BYOD initiative is to support and enhance student learning and should be aligned directly to student learning outcomes. Effectively using these devices can ensure that our students are more productive, conduct better research, become more digitally literate, and develop into digitally responsible citizens. Although our students are very proficient on their own devices, it is up to us as educators to make sure that they are used as effective teaching and learning tools.
