BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is not only about students bringing their own  devices to class and using them for educational purposes. It is much  more than just a problem of hardware but is rather a question of what "learningware" students need to install and use with their devices. Most of the discussions on BYOD center around the accessibility and availability of devices together with  the fact that students are experts of their own devices. Sounds good but not enough!

Students need to be provided  powerful educational apps to galvanize the learning gen inside of them. They need to be shown what apps work with which.  Below is a Symbalo board featuring a wide variety of powerful web tools and apps perfect for BYOD classrooms.
