BYOD Student Portal
If you have a child in prep to Year 12 schooling, you’ve likely encountered the idea of BYOD in schools. ‘Bring your own device’ in schools is an approach that values the intellectual opportunities offered through the inclusion of information technology in the classroom.
BYOD Pros and Cons
Of course, there are BYOD pros and cons – for students, parents, and schools. CompNow’s K-12 education expertise means we’re here to guide you through making BYOD in schools as safe, effective and rewarding as possible.
Pros – The rise of BYOD program in schools delivers several benefits:
- Students learn to effectively engage in their classroom using the skills they’ll need in the workforce (in future)
- Teachers can engage students in the language that’s most meaningful to them
- The focus shifts from passive learning to active, creating learning experiences that last
Cons – The adoption of BYOD programs can be a challenge for teachers, particularly those with traditional teaching methods that rely heavily on paper and pens.
