As schools prepare for common core assessment implementation, they must also address the need to include BYOD in their plans. Though BYOD might not be used for the assessment, it does provide significant benefits to schools for differentiation and individualization of content directed to each child’s need as indicated by the assessment. It is important that every school technology leader knows how BYOD can enhance the teaching/learning process and provide resource strapped schools with much needed tools.

The challenge of preparing for common core assessments is hard enough; however, with the advantages that BYOD provides, it behooves all school technology leaders to tackle the issues involved with a BYOD initiative. In this webcast you will learn how SchoolDude can help ensure that your district is technology ready for the common core assessment, as well as, for the rise in BYOD.
