BYOD & Classroom Management
Transcript of BYOD & Classroom Management
Jill, Megan, Tara, & Kaitlyn
Statement of the Issue
How do BYOD policies affect classroom management and teacher planning?
BYOD Makes Classroom Management More Difficult
BYOD Helps Classroom Management
Issues with BYOD in the classroom:
Lack of teacher training
Specific behavior management plan for BYOD
Increases Student Engagement
Monitor Student Progress in Classroom Activities
Fewer Concerns with Device Usage
Lack of Teacher Training
Teachers do not know how to use technology effectively to support student learning
Teachers are not learning how to incorporate mobile devices to enhance student learning or improve student engagement.
Monitor Student Progress
Increases Student Engagement
Behavior Management Plans
Allows teachers to track of student progress, assign benchmark assignments
School Internet Network:
Teachers can monitor student activity, ensure they are working on relevant activity
Fewer Concerns with Device Usage
Students already know how to use their own devices.
Students will not have to worry about having different devices in different classes.
Students take better care of their own devices than they do the school devices.
Cyber-Bullying and BYOD
Teachers have to monitor not only students' behavior in class, but how and when they use their devices
Teachers must make and enforce additional rules about when students may use technology
Teachers need to be aware of threats to the wireless network at the school, and internet safety.
Highlights socio-economic inequalities between students and their personal access to devices outside of the classroom is highlighted
Students may feel pressured or embarrassed by their access to technology (i.e. do not have a smart phone)
Can also encourage bullying the classroom without teachers' knowledge
Students may be able to send inappropriate messages during the school day
Ownership of Learning:
BYOD brings a component of ownership and independence to learning
BYOD increases students' interest in assignments, acts as a fun, engaging educational tool
BYOD allows students to work together in a way that is applicable to the "real world" of the 21st century
BYOD can be an effective learning tool when properly implemented in the classroom.
In order for BYOD to work, teachers need to prepare and implement a specific management plan and classroom policies tailored to their students' needs and school procedures.
Recommendations for the Classroom
Effective Teacher Training
Clearly Define Expectations for Classroom Use
Student BYOD Agreement Pledges
Clearly define expectations for technology use in the classroom before adopting a BYOD policy.
Basic "Dos and Don'ts" (i.e. when the technology should be used, how the technology should be used, what is expected from technology use)
Teachers and faculty should be trained in how to use mobile devices, wireless networks, content platforms, etc. before BYOD policies are implemented.
Training should also include preparation for how to implement and enforce BYOD policies.

Before adopting a BYOD policy, the school administration and/or teachers should devise a BYOD Student Use Agreement, and have students sign this agreement. This makes use expectations known to the students, and provides a degree of accountability to the policy.
