Louisiana District Pilot Explores "Bring Your Own Device" Strategy

The New Orleans Times-Picayune (3/22, Boquet) reports, "Students at St. John the Baptist Parish's two high schools will become part of a pilot program next year that will allow them to bring their own technology devices to school to aid in learning. The Bring Your Own Device pilot is one of several strategies outlined in the district's technology plan for 2012-14, which also includes goals for increased teacher training, use of virtual schools and videoconferencing." The piece quotes district coordinator of educational technology Bonnie Dinvaut saying that the program was conceived because budget cuts prevented the district from placing technology in every classroom.
