B.Y.O.D. Is this a party?

BYOD = Bring Your Own Device (handheld internet-connected)

This may seem like a disaster.  But actually, it’s the answer for more and more teachers.  With budget cuts increasing yearly and no end in sight, we can’t sit back and wait for the school to purchase computers for each student.  And we can’t continue on without bringing technology in the classroom in a meaningful way.  Before you panic and imagine the chaos that will ensue, read some of these articles and watch a few short videos.  Then instead of  always being the naysayer, you can choose to be the informed professional who has an opinion based on facts.
