  2. 2. 5 Ed Tech Communication Trends 2 The BYOD Revolution1 As tablets and smartphones take over the world, it’s predicted that consumer and education industries will shift their content delivery strategy to a “mobile first” mind- set. This mobile-first strategy means that both new and repurposed content can be conveniently communicated to any recipi- ent with a mobile device. The Bring Your Own Device movement breathes new life into paper-based edu- cational materials, which now must be ac- cessible and functional in many different formats.

Online learning offers many benefits, in- cluding the convenience of remote com- munication. Watch for more of these on- line learning experiences to appear in K12 schools and flip the one-size-fits-all classroom model on its head!

From classroom blogs to col- laborative online projects, both teachers and students are using social media as a basic part of learning. To reap as many benefits as possible, students need tools to access these me- dia both inside and outside of the class- room. Being able to access homework and learning materials outside class (i.e. from home) means that parents can also be involved in their child’s assignments and give them extra assistance.

A few management systems even have features that track and monitor student progress and provides real-time feed- back on how well students understand the assignments. Simplifying commu- nication this way makes it easier for teachers to focus on what they love best: teaching!

Get started by creating PDFs of your existing documents and/or scan your paper files into PDF format. You can also create and send videos explaining important information in- stead of handing out paper assignments or lecture notes. Digital correspondence makes it easy to share and distribute information to col- leagues, students, and parents.
