Planning, Implementation and BYOD 6. Making the most of your Budget There are a lot of companies after your money. What should we consider before making a purchase? Does your school have the infrastructure to support multiple devices? Decide what tablets you will buy: iPads? Android devices? Windows RT Which versions? This may depend on how you wish to use them. Are there platform specific apps you want to use? 1:1 or class sets? Talk to other schools. Where did they get theirs from? What was the service like? Did they get discount? Will you pay for device management software or use free software? Do you have an expert in school that can provide training or will you outsource? BYOD 7. Supporting ColleaguesIt is exceptionally important to support members of staff and provide training. If colleagues are not confident and do not see the value of tablets, the initiate could be doomed to fail. Begin with a launch. Make is a big deal. Ask keen members of staff to take part. They can then demonstrate the power of tablets and how they can support teaching and learning. Each department could have tablet 'leaders'. They will be given full training and begin to work with, and support other department members. Provide training material like video tutorials. The person running the initiative can suggest new and exciting apps and way they can be used in departments/ whole school. AUP. 8. Supporting StudentsStudents will also need supporting Training resources Training could be done by members of staff or digital leaders Students will need to buy into mobile devices, just like staff Explain why we will be using iPads Communicate with parents AUP 9. Supporting Colleagues and StudentsTraining Videos 10. Monitor and Evaluation Tablet UseBefore deciding to splash out on a lot of expensive devices you could run a small scale trial. Ask teachers/departments to submit an idea for a project using iPads to support T/L. What are the learning objectives/ outcomes? Create an online (or offline) form for teachers to submit their ideas. Keep track of what dates these projects will run. Create online (or offline) evaluation forms for students and teachers. After each project ask them to complete the forms. Analyse the results from each project and decide whether the trail was a success. 11. Monitor and Evaluation Tablet UseProject Planning Form 12.
