1. Bring your own device (BYOD)
Schools in increasing numbers are implementing BYOD and allowing students and staff to use mobile devices on the Wi-Fi network, and it’s not hard to see why! BYOD comes with many benefits, including greater student engagement, more opportunities for personalized learning, access to a host of uber-trendy pedagogical apps – not to mention the savings on tech, free-flowing information and data, and greater independent learning.
2. Revamped learning spaces
While digital transformation comes with many benefits, it also presents schools with a challenge: how can we foster a love of books in an increasingly digital age?
To tackle the challenge, some schools have begun rethinking their libraries as open spaces, or learning hubs conducive to rest, independent learning and creativity.
