What Teachers Need to Know About 1:1 vs BYOD

This site provides a comparison between 1:1 (' a strategy pursued by several educational institutions which  aims at equipping each student with  an electronic device') and BYOD ('encouraging and permitting students to bring their own personally-owned electronic gadgets to class').  Criteria used for comparison include:

  • Cost
  • Equality
  • Apps
  • Maintenance

' This comparison, however, should not be viewed as favouring one option on the other the decision of which one to use is contingent on different factors including the context, infrastructure, purposes, and teaching/learning needs of each school.'
