About The Webinar

Bring Your Own Device: Practical Guidance for Effective Implementation | Primary

This webinar will provide headteachers, school leaders and teachers with practical guidance and advice on implementing a bring your own device (BYOD) system in school and how to encourage effective implementation to maximise its benefits.

Implementing the BYOD system encourages greater participation in the classroom. When new technologies are incorporated into everyday learning, children and young people show greater interest in the curriculum and it limits – to an extent – upfront costs for equipment, tapping into existing resources that pupils and staff understand.

In this webinar, Brendan O’Keeffe, head of computing and a director of digital learning, discusses the motivation behind schools pursuing the BYOD system, as well as exploring practical considerations for implementation and explaining why good BYOD approaches must be teacher-led.

Learning Outcomes

  • Recognising the pedagogical justification for the BYOD system and the importance of schools implementing it effectively

  • Understanding the cost that comes with not implementing an official BYOD system in schools, including the absence of a valuable resource

  • Understanding the practical considerations when crafting a BYOD approach, as well as appreciating how to analyse device setups to find the best fit for a school

  • Realising the importance of communicating clearly with parents, carers and guardians, who are a crucial element in ensuring that a BYOD strategy is implemented properly

  • Realising the necessity of a good, teacher-informed BYOD policy and the cruciality of well-executed, accessible training for device usage post-deployment
