While administrators can face a variety of challenges when it comes to mobile device deployments and BYOD environments, using mobile technologies effectively can provide new opportunities for learning, including rethinking the age-old institution of homework.

The director of instructional technology at Putnam City will discuss why the district’s leadership decided to rethink its approach to mobile devices, how technology can provide a better model than traditional homework across grades K-12, and share some best practices for more effectively incorporating mobile devices, rethinking homework and creating better models for learning in any district.
