Is your infrastructure prepared?
•
•
Does your school have the proper wireless equipment
Is there secure access for students/staff?
Health and Safety
•
•
•
Is your school prepared for when students break the code of conduct?
Are present board policies counter to what BYOD means?
Do they ban the very devices that students are supposed to use?
What does BYOD mean? There are so many devices that students can use and if it is too openended, some students will take liberties that they shouldn't.
•
Laptop?, iPad?, Tablet?, Smartphone?, PS3, Nintendo DS, DSi
What about the students who cannot afford the devices?
• If schools require or encourage devices, they need a plan for those students who cannot
afford them
How will teachers receive professional development around BYOD?
• Not all staff understands how it works.
• Many teachers want to allow students to bring their own devices but they do not always
understand how they handle the concept.
Outreach to parents
• How are parents being informed that their children can BYOD? Parents need to know what
their children are doing with the expensive devices they bring to school.
• What is the policy if a device gets lost or stolen? Is school like a hotel? They're not
responsible for lost or stolen items?
