Sunday Resource Roundup-06.17.12: BYOD

Happy Father’s Day to the Dads out there and Happy Sunday to everyone else!  This week we’re introducing a new feature to the EdTech Times: the Sunday Resource Roundup.  With this project we hope to make your research on emerging concepts in education technology a little easier by assembling collections of articles and resources on a particular topic.  Up this week: BYOD.

Considering the speed at which developments in technology and how it’s applied to education happen,  BYOD, an acronym for “bring your own device,” is not necessarily a new concept, but it certainly is one that’s been getting a lot more play in the media as of late.  As this existing concept emerges from the shadows, more and more resources are being thrown into the spotlight with it.

Have questions or a never ending thirst for all things BYOD?  Below is a collection of some of those resources that we like.

Got any suggestions?  Let us know! We’ll feature your submission in a future post.
