  • Bringing Student owned devices is not the panacea or long term solution but it can serve a purpose
    Technical concerns about having different platforms, systems, and devices are real
    There continues to be a wide range of security issues
    Logistacal challenges ranging from students forgetting to bring devices to bandwidth or drop outs
    Legal concerns about cell phones vs internet devices, cipa, and others are all realities
