BYOD Case Study: Sheffield High School - Articles - Educational Technology - ICT in Education

BYOD Case Study: Sheffield High School - Articles - Educational Technology - ICT in Education:

 "Sheffield High School is a private girls’ all-through school, ie ages 4-18, in the urban setting of Sheffield, England. It has around 1000 pupils.
The school makes for an interesting case study in that it has not yet actually implemented a BYOD programme. The groundwork has been laid, with the school working with its parent organisation, the Girls Day School Trust, to ensure that its networking infrastructure is robust enough to support the intended developments.

As for the devices themselves, Ian Guest, ICT Development Manager, says:

“We are now considering the 'soft' aspects of the project, exploring the issues this will have for users (both staff and students), how we might address concerns (of staff, students & parents) and how we might best provide support. We are also developing a roll-out plan, most likely with phased access to the services.”"
