Frog 13 - Microsoft - Innovative teaching and learning with BYOD


Published on

Education continues to be the bell weather for innovation and opportunity to do things differently with technology. Consumerisation is driving change and consequently there is a demand for new ways of working, from BYOD to Flipped Classroom to MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).

Amongst this opportunity we need to ensure that technology is indeed going to serve teaching and learning appropriately; Teachers need to be trained on how to apply these innovations in and outside the classroom.

In this session, we will share our observations on what it means to introduce BYOD to your school, the challenges, the opportunities and how to bring this all together in a well formed teaching and learning package, where you are using Microsoft technologies and services (such as Windows 8 and Office 365).

  5. 5. 1 to 1 = BYOD?1 to 1 needs BYOD?What do you think?Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to technologymodels where students bring a personally owneddevice to school for the purpose of learning.A personally owned device is any technology devicebrought into the school and owned by a student (or thestudent’s family), staff or guests.BYOD solves world peace?
  6. 6. “Every turned off device is a turned off child”Prof Stephen Heppell, University of Bournmouth – www.heppell.net3 BYOD impacts areas:1. Increase number of devices that can be used forlearning2. Avoid unnecessary expenditure and re-direct toother areas of ICT need3. Avoid duplication or more of devices, increasingusage
  7. 7. BYOD – What matters?Three main reasons to look at BYOD:1. Student Familiarity2. Bridge between formal and informal learning3. Cost and sustainability1. What device strategy/policy is right for you2. Funding models3. School Policies4. What digital content is to be accessed5. Security models6. Infrastructure7. Innovative Teaching & Learning
  8. 8. BYOD - What device strategy/policy is right for you?Standardisation• What matters are devices that are Internet ready, alternatively you could insiston everyone bringing the same device….hmmmUsage & Flexibility• Laptops, Netbooks, Smartphones, Tablets, Hybrid Computers, even Windows to-Go all count! How do you want Students to use these devices?• BYOB (Bring your own browser) – Prof. Stephen Heppell likes this.Management• How will I control what students can/can’t do?• How will you manage the devices; security, apps, theft, etc
  9. 9. BYOD - Funding ModelsRemember, not all students will have access to a device!Some Funding models:• School out-right device purchase• School subsidises device purchase - i.e. 25% of cost. Studentownership can help with how long the device will last!• Leasing devices - In some cases devices can be owned at the end ofthe term; this may not be that interesting though• Free for-all – Students bring what they want, so long as they meetschool standards, etc. Worth noting additional insurance to coverdevices whilst in school!How will you fund your BYOD program?

  13. 13. PoliciesOwnership & Insurance• School purchased, how do you transfer ownership to the student/parent?Owned or not, devices will need some insurance for in and out of theclassroom.• Engage parents to ensure ownership & responsibilities are clearly understood.Responsible Use• Re-visit ICT usage policies, BYOD will change things, i.e. use of Social Media.• Engage students in developing “Usage” policies helps buy-in.• Don’t forget to include BYOD in your Teaching and Learning policy too!Equality of Access• Every student needs access to a device, you need to provide this. Devicelibrary perhaps.Teacher professional development• Create a policy for continuous teacher professional development• Technical & Pedagogical. Encourage staff to share
  14. 14. Digital content“Imagine a world in which every singleperson on the planet is given free accessto the sum of all human knowledge.”Jimmy Wales, founder, WikipediaAccess to Digital content is key to any BYOD strategyAccessibility• Screen size & magnification support• Flash content support• Viewing & editing documents• Windows 8 accessibility features –• Access to digital content in and out of the classroom• Cloud enabled content works well – cross/multi-device support• Copyright cleared – Creative Commons,• Tie student copyright responsibilities to Fare Use policiesPrivacy• Where is your data held?• How will you safeguard student data?• Office 365 Data/Security Status -
  15. 15. Infrastructure“There is no doubt that, for this next decade andbeyond, broadband infrastructure will be asrelevant to economic progress as roads andtransportation, including effective rail and air links”.- John F McClelland C.B.E.Many BYOD and other 1:1 learning projects failed because, although thedevices have been put in place, the bandwidth and infrastructure have notbeen adequate to support them!Key questions – Alberta Education (BYOD Guide -• Students/Teachers likely require multiple logins/devices!• Current wireless capacity/configuration?• Number of devices supported?• Can you manage centrally?• Bandwidth gaps for wired vs wireless, how do you close the gap?• Growth rates?• How will you re-charge personally owned devices?• Should students be allowed to use 4G/3G networks?Security• Procedures for lost or stolen student-owned devices?• Encryption, Anti-virus/malware, mobile device management & identitymanagement• Consortium of Schools Networking -

  25. 25. ConclusionFor BYOD to be successful, permission for students to bring in their own devices is not enough (althoughit is a good start!).Leadership• Vision & passion to improve education with technology and the will to affect change!Shared Vision• A lone vision can be revolutionary, a shared vision can be transformational – Head Teachers,Teachers, Governors, Students & wider communities (Parents too)Pedagogy• Teaching & Learning should look very different in a BYOD or 1 to 1 environment, if not….check yourstrategy!Teacher professional development• Ensuring teachers embrace new methods and apply to teaching and learning in/out of the classroomResponsible Use Policies• Social media, Teaching and Learning and engage students in policy developmentInfrastructure• You may have the devices, but do they work effectively on your network?Digital Content• Licensing, copyright, infrastructure impact, and data privacyFinally, no large-scale technology project is the same. Only through the sharing of good and interestingpractice with others can we learn to transform teaching and learning forever!
