- The only drawback I can see from teaching perspective only...I would have to be very experienced with multiple operating systems, computers, etc. So I could maximize on time teaching/facilitating/learning and not troubleshootingNov 5, 2013
- I think that's why it's so important to move towards mobile web apps that will work on any platform. There are currently so many options that being tied to apps made by one company over another is almost unnecessary.Nov 5, 2013

- Thank you for the article. Very happy to read that this is half 1:1 scenario and half BYOD. The discount on Chromebooks is great, even if it isn't for every family.Nov 7, 2013
- I think that BYOD is a better fit in high school than any of the younger grades since the students should have a background in their chosen technology and the teacher can do most anything through something like Google classroom on any device. Once students get to college they will not have a given device and so need to be versed with whatever they bring.
Yes it could mean teachers trying to become proficient in all technologies but really if you use a fully online platform like Google classroom, haiku, or edmoto.
However, from a county perspective, it is always easier to handle 1:1 with trainings and such as we get more teachers trained and online. Both are excellent options if you do the right kind of push out and support. Though nothing is perfect.43w
