BYODD Research




Department of Education Literature Review (2013)

A literature review undertaken by the NSW Department of Education and Communities found that
the key considerations for implementing BYOD were:

  • The widespread availability of wireless internet-enabled devices.
  • The integral nature of these devices to the students' own world.
  • The possibility of leveraging students' attachment to their own devices to deepen
    learning and to make learning more personalised and student-centred.
