I recently came across the presentation below about ‘Personally Owned Devices’ and was reminded that two of the largest school districts here in San Antonio are now allowing students and faculty to bring personal laptops or netbooks to use at school on the district’s networks. I included the NISD news announcement here and the new AUP associated with the new policy.
Most school districts ban students and faculty from bringing personal equipment onto campuses to use on the district network servers. This is a huge stray from the norm and poses many new challenges while opening the door to great possibilities for instructional tools with students as mentioned in the presentation by David Truss.
I came across the presentation embedded below on David Truss’ blog, ‘Pair a dimes for your Thoughts‘. David created the presentation for Alan November’s Building Leadership Communities-BLC09 conference and I thought it was extremely fitting with the new policies recently adopted in the two school districts. After viewing the presentation, are the PODs coming to your school or school district this fall?
Vodpod videos no longer available.
After viewing the presentation, will PODs be coming soon to a school or school district near you?
