Excitably this year at the IIATE conference I ran a workshop on BYOD (bring your own device).
“How can portable devices such as tablets, smart phones, laptops, iPads and iPods be integrated effectively into technology classes to enhance learning?
Online tools, apps, games and websites that are relevant to a wide variety of TAS subjects will be demonstrated. Bring your own device on the day (ALL platforms and device types are welcome).”
Here is my prezi introducing the concept/idea of BYOD- – – – > PREZI
In the weeks prior to the workshop I employed the help of my PLN to gather additional resources, because other teachers in my PLN teach in differing subject areas AND different device types AND they are pretty clever!
Some of the responses looked like this:
I went through each app that was suggested compiling a list that worked with my workshop sections/audience (keeping in mind my workshop was for TAS teachers in a high school setting):
- STUFF FOR TEACHERS
- STUFF FOR LATER
THIS info I then put into these handouts to be used on the day.
I chose to use QR codes as they are a GREAT way of getting A LOT of info into a small space – each QR code on the handout contained WHAT the tools DOES and HOW it could be integrated into the classroom. I can also attribute the groovy layout to comic life, SO EASY!!
HOW DO YOU DO BYOD IN YOUR CLASSROOM ??? ANY TIPS FOR NEWBIES OR SEASONED TECH HEADS??
