Support Strategies – Supporting/Understanding numerous devices. Teaching and Learning – Can our rooms handle it? Fiscal Implications – Cost saving or Cost Expense?

8 Division of Information Resources What can we do with BYOD? Create Collaboration Spaces Design spaces that offer students the opportunity to collaborate in various activities, adding more depth to their educational experience Embrace advances in educational technology

9 Division of Information Resources What can we do with BYOD? Develop opportunities for Flipped Learning – A pedagogical approach in which the direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group spaces is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter. Robert Talbert, The Chronicle

10 Division of Information Resources FLIP Learning Flexible Environment – Students are allowed a variety of modes of learning and means of assessment Learning Culture – Student-centered communities of inquiry rather than instructor-centered lecture Intentional Content – Placing content in the most appropriate context Professional Educator – Being a reflective, accessible instructor who collaborates with other educators and take responsibility for perfecting one’s craft

11 Division of Information Resources What Makes a Collaboration Space Successful? Multiple displays Generous provisions of writing surfaces Lightweight furniture that can be easily moved into different combinations Wireless connectivity Speaker systems and video capability
