BYOD - What does this mean to you?
“If we teach today as we taught
yesterday, we rob our children of
tomorrow.” - John Dewey
“We are currently preparing
students for jobs that don’t
exist using technologies that
haven’t yet been invented in
order to solve problems we
don’t know we have.”
James Melsa, 2007

Useful Analogies for
Understanding How BYOD is
Managed
• The Tooth Brush – it’s something we
don’t share
• The Parking Lot – we made the
space, protect it, and offer it, but
there are lines, rules, and norms to be
followed or use/access is not
guaranteed
• The T-Shirt, Backpack and Locker –
displayed images and the contents
are subject to school rules and are
susceptible to search
