Today's students have embraced mobile technology, and educators can no longer ignore this reality.

In Bring Your Own Learning, highly respected educational technologist Lenny Schad tells the story of leading his large Texas school district through a program of inclusion, where it no longer matters what technology is being used or who owns the device. What matters is that students learn in the ways that make sense to them and their teachers.   The book discusses:

  • Determining and achieving success factors for mobile learning plans.
  • Case studies of initiatives, including mobile learning, digital citizenship and more.
  • Future plans for the initiatives.
  • Appendix materials for tailoring mobile initiatives to content areas.

    Schad walks you through the entire process,  discussing what worked and what needed to be reworked in his district. If you've been struggling with how to respond to the bring-your-own-device revolution, this is the perfect place to start.

    Lenny Schad is the chief technology information officer for Houston ISD. He formerly served as KATY ISDs chief information officer. While under Schads leadership, KATY ISD was named among the 12% of U.S. school districts that the CEO Forum designated as high technology districts.
