How to make BYOD work for your schools


“BYOD means schools are not managing devices, but managing content and having a mechanism to deliver content to that device in a secure way,” Till said.

Many companies are offering specific BYOD solutions for their education customers, because they recognize BYOD’s growing popularity, as well as the need for school IT staff to manage such initiatives.

ClassLink offers a free BYOD guidebook for schools that are thinking of implementing a BYOD initiative. The guide focuses on school infrastructure, equity, curriculum, instruction, policy, and communication. ClassLink also offers a BYOD library with samples to help educators and IT staff.

Other companies focusing on BYOD for schools include ADTRAN, Aerohive NetworksAirWatch, Absolute Software, Parallels, and Cisco.
