January 2017 edition of the journal “The Internet and Higher Education,” looked at 17 teachers and their approaches to implementing BYOD policies in their classrooms.

Despite the constraints, most people surveyed agreed that today’s instructors should encourage devices to become part of the classroom, as the perceived benefits and resources exceed the textbooks currently used. At the same time, full implementation might require an entire overhaul of the classroom environment as we know it.
(how about gamification of the teaching process (http://web.stcloudstate.edu/pmiltenoff/bi/), as it was proposed numerous times and rejected by the librarians?)

The authors of the study are Yanjie Song and Siu Cheung Kong from the Department of Mathematics and Information Technology at the Education University of Hong Kong. The complete report is available for a fee on this site.

BYOD in the library

I am wondering why the recent remodeling of Miller Center 218 remained stuck in the “laptop” model after it was proposed numerous times to consider the BYOD model:
