How to Handle Student Owned Devices on School Wireless Networks
The issue of bring your own device (BYOD) or bring your own PC (BYOPC) is frequently talked about by IT directors managing school wireless networks.
The mobile revolution has unleashed an invasion of smart phones, iPads, laptops, ipods, and other devices. Technology is a tool that easily increases productivity and helps students learn -- but as an IT director, how can your school wireless network handle students bringing their own devices?
IT departments for school wireless networks need to be able to manage the many mobile devices students and teachers are accessing the network with.
