- BYO: Goals, Policies, and Logistics - 2:30-3:40 pm
Presenters: Nancy Caramanico (moderator); Sandra Paul, Rick Cave and Rob Miller
Whether you call it BYOT, BYOD, or student-owned technology, the idea of allowing young people to bring their own laptops and mobile devices to school with them is gaining ground for a number of reasons. We've asked three different districts to talk about their BYO programs, explaining how and why they've chosen this course and responding to a series of questions concerning equity, policy-setting and technical challenges.
