The bring your own device (BYOD) trend, where pupils bring their own tablets, smart phones or laptops to school, is already making its mark in the education sector.
However, it doesn’t have to be yet another technology dilemma; with careful planning and consideration schools can enjoy an efficient transition to BYOD. Here are the top ten tips to consider:
1. Keep an eye on costs
Budget restrictions are a continuous issue, particularly at a time when schools are being encouraged to do more for less, so consider the utilisation of existing technology within the school and the role it can play in BYOD.
2. Deploy single sign-on (SSO)
By allowing teachers and students to have the same username and password with any device, single sign-on helps achieve a seamless transition from one device to another whilst maintaining a consistent user experience. It is also essential for security.
