This checklist can be used to help you reflect on your school’s readiness for implementing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or 1:1 devices owned by either learners or school. The scope of this checklist includes community, planning (both strategic and teaching & learning) and infrastructure. Not all items will be relevant to all schools.
It is advised that this checklist is part of a broader approach and strategic plan. An approach such as the spirals of inquiry and tools such as the e-Learning Planning Framework/Te Rangitukutuku and Strategic Thinking Roadmap can help you make sure that decisions are based on reliable information and that your plans include review and evaluation.
BYOD is used throughout this document to refer to how 1:1 is attained. This checklist is equally useful for a school-funded 1:1 implementation. For further reading about planning for BYOD / 1:1 please refer to the TKI guides, Planning for and managing 1:1 digital devices in your school and Learning with 1:1 digital devices.
The BYOD and 1:1 Preparedness Checklist is designed to be viewed on screen or printed.
