Many companies and schools are implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach to doing business and to learning, and the 'Going BYOD' Infographic takes a look at the advantages and disadvantages of this.
Going BYOD is the basic idea of allowing students and employees the option to use their own personal electronic devices in the office or in the classroom. Thus allowing companies and school systems the opportunity to cut back on expenses, while remaining current. This BYOD infographic outlines the many statistics from a recent study that was done, such as 85% of students and adults already own their own smartphone devices needed for BYOD.
Implementing this approach would allow students and employees to remain engaged and cut back on them forgetting devices. On the other hand, not everyone can afford these expensive electronics, and getting each and everyone’s device to work together could be difficult.
