What Others Are Saying
“Kids have technology in their pockets and
[are] taking them to school, but trying to
hide them from teachers and from their
parents. What we’re trying to do is have the
kids take them out of their pockets and use
[them] for instruction.”
- Coord of Ed Technology, Forsyth County, GA
Equity of Access
does not mean 1:1
 Availability of classroom devices
 Cost Savings = More devices
 Device is a tool, not a necessity for
student success
What Others Are Saying
“a horrible idea … I had the normal parent
concerns, you know, are things going to get
broken? Are they going to get lost or stolen?
And what about those kids that don’t have
technology that they could take to school?”
But as the program got underway, she saw
“how much the kids were able to do with it in
the classroom. I found that it was a
phenomenal idea.”

What Others Are Saying
“The concept of BYOD is not related to
occurrences of Cyber-bullying; it's neither
an exacerbative factor nor a solution to the
problem. The reality is that Cyber-bullying
prevention is only accomplished through
education. BYOD does not enhance this
behavior nor dissuade it.”
