Bett‏  @Bett_show

Welcome to today’s #BettChat. Who wants to get us started and share their thoughts on BYOD in education?

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

#BYOD has introduced a whole new set of guidelines and policies into the classroom #websecurity #BettChat

Animate It!‏  @AnimateEducate

We need to empower children to use devices they are used to using every day, not leave them at the gates #BettChat

Animate It!  ‏@AnimateEducate

Typically children take more care of devices that belong to them anyway – #BettChat

Animate It!  ‏@AnimateEducate

@Smoothwall #BettChat And allows them to continue their learning outside the constraints of the school building!

WebBased  ‏@WebBasedLtd

BYOD will help to improve student engagement & enhance teaching and learning! #BettChat

Nick Novak‏  @NicholasNovak

How do we also make sure to bridge the gap for those without devices to bring? This is equally important. #bettchat #BYOD

Smoothwall  ‏@Smoothwall

Insights from Raleigh, North Carolina Tools like Socrative – a great way to engage students. Thanks Mr Miles http://bitly.com/SeSImP #BettChat

Dave Kelly‏  @DavKellyPro

Taking part in @Bett_show #BettChat. What do you think of #BYOD? I think positive – caveats: training, planning, and preventing disadvantage

InfoMentor UK‏  @infomentoruk

You also have to consider who supports the devices if technical problems occur in the classroom #Bettchat #BYOD

Ergo Computing‏  @ergocomputing

Interesting topic… the spotlight will definitely be on Wireless and Security #BYOD #BettChat

eInstructionApacEmea‏  @eInstruction_uk

It can be argued if children are already familiar with the workings of the tech, then it is easier/quicker to use it for learning #BettChat

Nick Novak‏  @NicholasNovak

@eInstruction_uk Agreed. Much easier that we think. #bettchat

Animate It!‏  @AnimateEducate

@eInstruction_uk Not only familiar, if they are #BYOD then it is likely to be a device they enjoy using too…. #BettChat

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

@NicholasNovak Good point! When budgets allow buy extra devices for those without.. #Bettchat

Ergo Computing  ‏@ergocomputing

Really good article on #BYOD posted by @C4LPT http://c4lpt.co.uk/2012/08/janes-pick-of-the-day-12-august-2012/ … #BettChat

Daydream Education  ‏@DaydreamEdu

Join in with #bettchat! Today’s topic: what are your thoughts on BYOD in education?

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

Feedback from the classroom – “All in all, I have seen an increased desired to participate, learn & engage”. http://bit.ly/SeSImP #BettChat

Capita SIMS‏  @CapitaSIMS

BYOD doesn’t have to be for the whole school, it can be for specific year groups. Maybe the sixth form #BETTChat

Dave Kelly  ‏@DavKellyPro

The beauty of #BYOD is that kids don’t need to be taught how to use them. Aside, this was VERY interesting… http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9765000/9765200.stm … #bettchat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

BYOD has to be good, easier for children to engage when using their own devices. Just need to make sure activity is monitored. #BettChat

Louise Golding-Hann‏  @LGHDLD

@Bett_show Students have lots of technology and they *want* to use it. Works well for us, we have dedicated desks to include power supplies. #BettChat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

@capitasims sounds like a good idea. Leave it until they get to 6th Form when they can hopefully be more trusted. #BettChat

Malcolm Wilson‏  @claganach

@Bett_show: resources here may be useful for schools moving to BYOD http://glo.li/NWgGQT #BettChat

Dave Kelly  ‏@DavKellyPro

@CapitaSIMS I’d argue that you could start earlier, though. Year 11 experientially seems likely to have personal smart tech #BettChat #BYOD

WebBased‏  @WebBasedLtd

@NicholasNovak I agree, not everyone is fortunate to have mobile devices so how do we ensure #BYOD doesn’t alienate some students #bettchat

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

BYOD is a major challenge for ICT managers. We interviewed admins to establish issues with safe web access http://bitly.com/RB9Ll1 #BettChat

Academia Ltd‏  @AcademiaLtd

#BettChat we have experience on delivering 1:1 #BYOD solutions to education. Great example is @deFerrersiPad Speak to @apple_academia

Daydream Education  ‏@DaydreamEdu

#bettchat BYOD can be viewed as helping with tight budgets within schools, and ultimately – it’s education!

Frog‏  @frogtrade

We have had our own frogchat on BYOD it was very popular you can read the results here http://tinyurl.com/c3ru38q #BettChat #Frog

Nick Novak‏  @NicholasNovak

@DavKellyPro Yes! Very similar to the work of Sugata Mltra in India. Kids figure it out. #bettchat http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_the_child_driven_education.html …

Capita SIMS‏  @CapitaSIMS

@stpaulscatholic has for several years leased devices to its students and this year is trialing iPads in year 10 #BETTChat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

What legal considerations (if any) need to be planned for when initiating a BYOD scheme? If an item gets stolen, whose responsible? #BettChat

LapSafe Products‏  @LapSafe

BYOD is a great way to motivate students to take learning outside of the classroom -important to have a usage policy in place! #BettChat

Altman Technologies  ‏@AlTLtd

@webbasedltd great point, it’s an interesting dilemma. #BettChat

Daydream Education‏  @DaydreamEdu

#BYOD #bettchat With hardware so diverse, how do schools make the decision on what to spend their tech budget on?

Dave Kelly  ‏@DavKellyPro

@AlTLtd Absolutely – it’s crucial, I think, to redirect money saved into providing pooled tech for those who can’t. #byod. #bettchat

Daydream Education‏  @DaydreamEdu

@NicholasNovak Sharing! Another positive outcome of #byod! #bettchat

Altman Technologies  ‏@AlTLtd

What is stopping schools from introducing BYOD? Budget, security, lack of engagement? What has anyone seen in the field? #BettChat

Dave Kelly‏  @DavKellyPro

@DaydreamEdu A much wider issue – how have schools ever made that decision? Desktop/laptop, Mac/PC…! Horses for courses? #byod #BettChat

Dave Kelly‏  @DavKellyPro

@AlTLtd Absolutely. Moreover, most teachers won’t give it a whirl until this is in place, for fear of. #BYOD needs pioneers, too #BettChat

Daydream Education‏  @DaydreamEdu

@DavKellyPro an excellent and valid point. #bettchat #byod

WebBased‏  @WebBasedLtd

@AlTLtd Good point, one that many parents I’m sure would want to know before allowing #byod into schools #BettChat

Academia Ltd‏  @AcademiaLtd

Pioneers in the #BYOD & 1:1 field in #EDU @deFerrersiPad The drive came from @deepexperience1#BETTCHAT #FF Supported by @apple_academia

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

All I could do when I was at school was play snake on my mobile device. Now they can research, develop and share project ideas. #BettChat

Bett‏  @Bett_show

Does anyone have any good examples of #BYOD in schools already? #BettChat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

@Bett_show 10 Schools That Have Implemented BYOD http://bit.ly/SVLODt #BettChat

Dave Kelly  ‏@DavKellyPro

@Bett_show …would bring camera phones to a match, we’d provide PDAs (!!), and they’d write a match report. Bluetooth to… #byod #BettChat

Dave Kelly  ‏@DavKellyPro

@Bett_show …computers back in the learning centre, and formatting/placing pics/literacy. A mix of #byod and provided tech. #BettChat

XMA ‏  @XMAITSolutions

@Bett_show If students cannot afford their own devices, there are various different leasing programmes available to them #bettchat

Matthew Ellis‏  @mr_m_ellis

@thecuriousgeek Some interesting stuff here #BettChat #BYOD

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

@DavKellyPro @Bett_show Were the pupils with the provided tech confident in it’s use? Also, how did you secure the devices? #Bettchat

Altman Technologies  @AlTLtd

A lot of our partners have worked with schools to introduce BYOD, but haven’t done case studies yet, which is a shame. #BettChat

Dave Kelly‏  @DavKellyPro

@Smoothwall @bett_show With some basic lessons, quickly confident. We didn’t, oddly – just explained boundaries and gave trust. #BettChat

Smoothwall‏  @Smoothwall

@DavKellyPro @Bett_show Were the pupils with the provided tech confident in its use? Also, how did you secure the devices? #Bettchat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

We have been involved with supplying print management software for mobile devices when being used in a BYOD project. #BettChat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

We recently wrote a blog post about mobile printing and BYOD. Read it here http://ow.ly/f4cAx #BettChat

Altman Technologies‏  @AlTLtd

@lapsafe definitely. It could get out of hand very quickly if proper rules+restrictions are not put in place. #BettChat

Dave Kelly‏  @DavKellyPro

@Smoothwall @bett_show …very trusting times! Good ‘classroom’ management techniques used, and kids self-regulated. #BettChat #BYOD

Bett  @Bett_show

A great #BettChat tonight on #BYOD in education. Brilliant ideas and conversation so thank you everyone! We look forward to next week
