…your old technologies? In this case, your smartphone?
Resources and infographics like this one bother me. Thanks, Visual.ly
It’s the statistic at the very bottom that should leap from the infographic.
Where do they go?
Why would stop them from ending up in a classroom?
Now, the goal isn’t to inflict a heavy workload on an computer support team. But, if your school is wireless and accepts BYOD for those students who bring them, this may offer a realistic alternative to those who don’t/can’t. The SIM card would be gone so you’re not going to use the phone part but with wireless access, what about the smart part? How many times have you heard a keynote speaker or an educational leader espouse the power of a smartphone in a student’s pocket? Even a disparate collection of smartphones work with a level playing field when connected to the internet and you’re using the internet browser. You don’t necessarily even need to consider having another working application on the device. (although that would be sweet!)
