Why Queen Mary’s College is promoting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
The College was promoting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) long before Covid, but the lockdown experience really emphasised how advantageous and critical technology can be in supporting you educationally as well as preparing you for the modern-day workplace.
What does BYOD mean?
A personal device is NOT a mobile phone. We suspect that the majority of you have invested in personal devices such as laptops/Chromebooks over recent years and we want you to bring your devices to College. Many of you will also be familiar with their use in school. The break away from ‘computer rooms’ opens up opportunities for using personal devices in a way that is meaningful to you and your learning. A personal device allows you to have technology at the heart of your learning whether you are in the classroom, researching in the Library or at home completing an assignment.
