Looking for some #byod  research - specifically, in a BYOD environment, what device trends are being observed (i.e. how many students have iOS, Android, PC, Mac, Chromebook, etc).

Google Chrome has been my browser of choice since it was launched in 2008. Chrome redefined the browsing experience for users and continues to do so today. Many new features in Explorer, Safari, and Firefox are responses to Google Chrome. Chrome is an awesome browser for the classroom.

Hey everyone! I'm conducting a workshop on BYOD in education and am looking for research that would shed some light on the breakdown of devices that students are bringing to schools - specifically what percentage are iOS, Android, PC, Mac, Chromebook, etc. Has anyone here taken such a poll of their students?
