WiFi access in schools is no longer a dream, it is a reality. Take some schools in Lagos State example. A public school, completely WiFi-enabled. They are promoting their new Bring-You-Own-Device (BYOD) program to facilitate learning. For those without, the school should provides free for students.
A “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) and multiple Mobile Lab Program is a seamless, realistic and achievable vehicle for personalizing the educational experience and engaging all students regardless of their academic level or learning style.By definition a BYOD program refers to a technology model where students bring a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning.
The BYOD and Mobile Labs Program encourages:
Digital content creation by students and teachers
Inquiry based learning
The proper use of online resources and learning tools
Student engagement in meaningful tasks
Increased literacy levels across multiple platforms
Lower levels of absenteeism
Teachers to be mentors in the classroom as opposed to the only providers of knowledge
Students and teachers shift focus to skill-based learning
