Some school districts are experimenting with allowing student-owned devices to be brought to class and operate on a wireless network. Proponents say this is a chance to quickly get to a scalable and affordable ubiquitous technology environment. Others feel it raises serious equity, legal and technical issues. Join us for a discussion of the opportunities and challenges on this innovative strategy and hear what can be learned from early K-12 pioneers.
