This special episode presents the recording of our first TER Live event, the Teachmeet BYOD Policy Forum. Panelists discuss issues relating to the development and implementation of BYOD policies in Primary and High School settings.
We’re excited to announce some additional content at our TER Live: BYOD Policy Forum on March 25.
Currently visitng Australia from the U.S., Jim Sill and Ken Shelton, two of Google’s ‘Apps Aficionados’, will be attending the forum, and will be joining the forum to discuss apps in education. We will be cutting a few minutes of the planned 60 for BYOD, and extending the forum by 10 minutes in order to give Jim and Ken up to 20 minutes to discuss apps and answer questions.
There’s already a good crowd signed up, with over 20 people planning to stick around after for dinner, so if you’d like to come and talk tech in education with like-minded teachers, click here for full details and registration.
