  • A Principal’s Reflections: BYOD Begins With Trust and Respect. An interesting analysis about one school’s experiences of BYOD. “Our BYOD initiative at New Milford High School has succeeded and grown up to this point based on the basic premise of trust and respect. Yes, we have policies in place, the right infrastructure, and support our teachers with professional development and guidance. However, the most important elements stem from the fact that we trust our students to use their devices as tools for learning, enhanced productivity, and to conduct better research. Time is spent working with them on digital citizenship and the creation of positive digital footprints that they can be proud of. We also respect them as learners growing up in the digital age where these tools are playing a greater role in the world we are preparing them to succeed in. When creating a BYOD initiative grounded in these principles the possibilities are endless.”

Technology and Students – Infographic

I love the great infographics that are being produced. This is another one that I thought I could use to begin a discussion with the students at my school. Many of our boys relate to visual stimuli and I think they would respond well to this one. I am trying to get them to think about how they learn and study best so this is quite timely.

This infographic is from a post entitled “Using Twitter Improves Students’ Grades, And Other Surprising Tech Usage Facts” written by Alyson Shontell on Aug. 10, 2011, in Business Insider
