Bring Your Own Device in Australian Schools

For those of you who haven’t heard of BYOD yet within the Australian education or corporate spheres, it stands for ‘Bring Your Own Device’, and it is the next big step in establishing the technological revolution of education within our schools. The integration of devices into schools is not an entirely new concept, with the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) program which has been around since 2007 being a multinational organisation now (including involvement by Australia). This program in general has been met with widespread criticism in the U.S after the abandonment of the program by one executive, and the obvious environmental issues such as maintenance and safety of a laptop within a school environment. For those of you who are familiar with the slow and often frustrating changes in the methods of delivering education, this all comes as no surprise.

Most prominantly, cuts made to literacy and numeracy coaching within school programs does not seem to be put to good use, with millions of dollars more (as reported in government released data) to be used on overseas travel, meals and accommodation.
