GaETC (Georgia Educational Technology Conference) 2013 (Andrea Keith)

Ownership of mobile devices is skyrocketing, and schools are already embracing, or at least planning to, their use in teaching and learning. But many are realizing one size does not fit all, and BYOD will mean a multitude of devices could be brought in. Learn about Gaggle’s Safe Online Teaching and Learning Tools and how many districts are using them to solve the challenges of providing tools for multiple and shared devices.

So Many Devices: Bringing Them All Together Presented by Andrea Keith Director –Client Engagement

School-Supplied Devices • Over 10 million iPads in use in schools today (Apple) • 81% of educators had or planned to adopt iPads (Forbes) • 31% had or planned to adopt Chromebooks (Forbes)

Risks of Providing Devices

Great Intentions…. What Went Wrong?

Is BYOD the answer? • District pilots of BYOD increased 47% from 2011 to 2012 • 73% of urban parents would likely buy a mobile device for their student to use at school


The Buying Decision Process

Flip the Process DeviceContentTools ToolsContentDevice

Step 1 Determine and publicize goals and objectives • Consider requirements for various devices, various end users; student safety and privacy • Get buy in from stakeholdersinternal and external

Step 2 Select core, device-agnostic platform/tools • Start with basic tools that will provide communication, collaboration, productivity on all devices • Plan and implement at least one consistent, flexible tool or service across the district

Step 3 Select/Plan content • What do you already have that can be accessed digitally? • Provide basics that cover Common Core or state standards. • Insert national website • Just because it’s in a free app doesn’t mean it’s good but teachers can be the best shoppers.

Step 4 Ensure adequate connectivity • Bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwidth! • It’s not just the size of your pipe, it’s the shape of your traffic. • All routers are not created equal. • Create the highway before you give everyone a car. • Plan for rush hour.

Step 5 Select devices and/or BYOD • One device may not fit all students. • Don’t be dazzled by cool or new. • Beware of sales people. • Solicit lessons learned from sources you trust. • Pilot, but not in isolation.
