Publisher Description

The focus of Click to Agree: Policies Impacting a One-to-One Mobile Learning Environment is to evaluate current and recommend new school board policies to implement and maintain a one-to-one mobile learning initiative using iPads in a K–8 school district. First, the district’s current acceptable use policy is analyzed and determined that no modifications are necessary to govern the new one-to-one initiative. Second, a new mobile device administrative procedure is proposed to address issues related to iPad use in and out of the district. A Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy is then proposed for students and staff to supplement the electronic devices provided by the school district. The current acceptable use policy, the proposed mobile device administrative procedure, and the proposed BYOD policy are discussed from various perspectives, including as advocated policy statements discussing the goals, objectives, needs, values, and preferences of the various stakeholders affected by the one-to-one mobile learning initiative. The initiative is then presented in terms of educational; economic; social; political; and moral and ethical analyses. A policy argument offers practical considerations for implementing the proposed mobile device administrative procedure, and a “pro-and-con” argument regarding the proposed BYOD policy is provided. A policy implementation plan discusses the educational, communication, and professional development activities needed for implementation. A policy assessment plan presents progress monitoring processes to ensure that the policies and administrative procedure continue to meet the needs of students and staff during the course of the initiative. Finally, a summary impact statement theorizes possible effects of the policies and administrative procedure.
