BYOD…From the Enterprise to Education
From the boardroom to the classroom, the BYOD phenomenon has reached educational facilities at all levels of learning, although use by grade level does vary. According to results from the 2013 SIIA Vision K-20 Survey, only 20% of the Elementary segment currently allows personal devices in the classroom, compared to almost 50% of Secondary and K-12 segments. This discrepancy is in part due to the age gap that exists between the segments, but in the future that gap is expected to shrink due to future system advancements and technology’s usefulness in the facilitation of learning. Of the institutions that currently allow BYOD, more than 75% of K-12 educators report restrictions on their use in the classroom. From the results published in the study, it is clear that educators in both K-12 and Postsecondary are eager to further implement technology into the learning environment, but there is a “crawl before you walk” phase educators must endure before a consistent and workable structure is in-place to govern usage, liability and other issues associated with BYOD technology.
