The Road from Banned to BYOD @atpe #byod @paulrwood @woscholar @neisd

Mandy Curtis, author of ATPE's News' TechSupport column, recently sent me an article that he authored. The theme of the ATPE News in this issue is Reflections on the New Normal: Education in the Age of Budget Cuts.



You can read the rest of the article online at 

Below is one of the several quotes from me that Mandy was kind enough to share with the ATPE audience:
At a time when shrinking school budgets mean that schools will never achieve one-to-one [See Tech Term, below], the resourceful approach involves asking kids to bring their home devices into schools,” wrote ed tech blogger Miguel Guhlin in September. Guhlin is a director of instructional technology services for an urban Texas school district. “As a parent of two children who have their own inexpensive netbooks … I know that these devices grant them MORE access to technology than what they have at school.” (Read Guhlin’s full post on BYOD at www.mguhlin.org/2011/09/byotbyod-dealingwith-fallout-paulrwood.html.)
My thanks to Mandy, ATPE, and all the others who contributed by their actions in school districts to the content of the original blog entry!!

To facilitate BYOT schools must give students and staff easy but secure access to the school's applications from various devices (including iPads, iPhones, Android devices and Chromebooks), while minimizing the intervention required by IT staff. An ideal solution for such a scenario is Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables remote users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser. AccessNow works natively with Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer (with Chrome Frame plug-in), Firefox and any other browser with HTML5 and WebSockets support.

Download this white paper to learn how a school district is implementing BYOT by capitalizing on innovative clientless HTML5 technology to empower students using Chromebooks and other devices with quick, browser-based access to Windows applications and virtual desktops.
