BYOD and cross-platform tools for learning
Ah... Sunday mornings. The perfect time to take people to task for tweets they're making to other people. Thankfully, my interlocutors (Fraser Speirs and Dave Major) were very accommodating. :-)
- So first of all Fraser was having a conversation with Jaye Hill and sent out the following tweets:
- I decided to jump in, as the web as 'weak sauce' kind of grated:
- He didn't bite, but then tweeted the following:
- This did actually make me laugh:
- Fraser then decided to engage:
- I pointed out Firefox OS and web-native apps:
- And we're off!
- Dave Major 'overheard' our conversation and joined in:
Did you find this story interesting? like or comment as 2 already did!

I think its hard enough to set up and support one 'platform' and to convince stakeholders to buy in you need to have concrete outcomes. Most educators are still at the point where they plan a learning activity hopefully based on learning outcomes, and then determine what resources they will use to support this. Therefore they need to be familiar with a set of tools, and expecting them to be aware of what is available across a range of platforms is unreasonable. But as schools become more confident about 1:1 access, and see the opportunities for learners to determine their own learning pathways they will start to move towards more open systems. IMHO the Apple ecosystem is currently the easiest to implement in a school, and this is an important consideration.more2012-09-28T09:28:47.707Z
