What is BYOD?

BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device
It is also referred to as BYOT or Bring Your Own Technology
The purpose is to allow students to bring their personal
devices into your school and use them for educational
purposes.
A device can include laptops, mobile phones, smart phones,
tablets, iPods, iPads, or any other mobile electronic device.

How could it benefit my school?



It is a possible solution to outdated computers, such as end
of life CFF equipment
Allows for a greater number of students to have access to
mobile devices
Cloud based applications provide access from anywhere –
extends the learning beyond the school day. Many are free.


Office 365 25Gb’s , Google Apps
Increase student engagement

It is not
necessarily
a way to
save money!
RESPONSIVE  INNOVATIVE  COST-EFFECTIVE  RESULTS ORIENTED
Why Not?
BYOD requires added investment
in infrastructure in order to allow
personal devices to connect in a
safe way.
 There will always be students
who do not have the means to
buy their own devices. The
district needs to have a plan to
provide equitable access.

What are the challenges?







Students may use devices outside of classroom
Students may use devices inappropriately
Personal devices may bring viruses onto school network
Supporting multiple platforms
Supporting devices with outdated antivirus and OS
updates
No way to control 3G or 4G access on devices
Schools have a responsibility to filter content (CIPA).



Applies to any device on school network.
Applies to any school owned device on or off the network.
Schools have a responsibility to protect data (FERPA)

What are the solutions?







Update policies and procedures
 Update to allow electronic devices on the network
 Policy should not allow use of wifi access (3G) and should indicate
penalties
Develop student guidelines
Develop a parent permission form that protects teacher and school from
lost/stolen equipment
Teachers need to monitor student use especially with regard to wifi access.
Implement a wireless network that supports BYOD inherently: Security &
Management (ie. Meraki Wireless, Cisco*, Aruba*). * additional components required
Implement a filtering device that can recognize any device that is on the
network (ie. Meraki, Lightspeed, Barracuda, SonicWall)
Implement Cloud Services to “wrap” solutions together - Stoneware
