Bring Your Own Device - BYOD
Employees or students bring personally owned mobile devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, smartphones, etc.) to their workplace or educational institution and use those devices to access corporate, institutional and other information, applications and services.
The Interactive Classroom Working Group has published two publications.
BYOD - Technical Advice for School Leaders and IT Administrators (2017)
The report provides relevant technical information to school leaders and IT Administrators that will allow them to engage in informed requirements analysis, planning and on-going oversight of the technical aspects and implications of BYOD but also useful reminders, tips and best practice examples.
Full report: Bring Your Own Device for Schools: Technical Advice for School Leaders and IT Administrators (October 2017), including four pocket guides:
BYOD - A guide for school leaders (2015)
This initial guide, published in 2015, was developed by European Schoolnet as part of the work of Ministries of Education in its Interactive Classroom Working Group (ICWG). It is designed to provide school leaders, local education authorities and other decision makers with information about current Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends, options and examples from schools in Europe as well as relevant lessons from BYOD implementations in schools in other parts of the world.
