Revisiting BYOD

Just listening to this great podcast on the Edtech Crew. Tony and Darryl have brought together 10 passionate educators to discuss this issue of schools allowing students to bring and use their own devices to school to learn with. It is so interesting to hear such thoughtful people looking at the pros and cons and seeing the implications for schools and for pedagogy.

The point that really interested me was that of relationships and the way these are enabled (or not) by allowing students to use the devices from home. Discussions of equity and democracy enlivened the debate. Listen to the whole program to stimulate your thinking.
