BYOD and the Mini-lab: differentiating technology in 21st Century Education

A session at ECOO Conference 2012

Thursday 25th October, 2012

1:00pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Bring your own device? Mobilizing the desktop? Decentralizing IT management? These things have happened in business and many government organizations, but they lag behind in education. Students carry around computers more powerful than desktops from twelve years ago, but we ban them rather than integrating them. Schools cling to board administrated labs and restrictive IT infrastructures, all to maintain an illusion of control. If we are to teach digital fluency, if we are to remain relevant during this technological revolution, we need to embrace these changes, and teach students how best to survive and prosper in a future we barely acknowledge in school. Come and see what education will look like in the future, and how we can take concrete steps toward that future now. http://prezi.com/h7ms3hw7jx7-/mi...
