K-12 education, once a bastion of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” is now at the forefront of a technological revolution. Technology in the classroom is not only improving student test performance, it’s allowing teachers, administrators, parents and students to break through the school walls and collaborate in the task of education. A key aspect of this revolution is the emergence of BYOD (bring your own device) and VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure), which allow school districts to keep up with technological advancements so that no student is left behind.
A new Market Connections study commissioned by NetApp shows that schools are realizing benefits as a result of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) that supports BYOD, or students bringing their own devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets into the classroom.
Results show great news when it comes to BYOD: Schools are realizing benefits as a result of implementation.
At both the district and school level, BYOD is on decision- makers’ minds; 73% believe BYOD implementation is essential to success.
The fact is BYOD, VDI, and virtual systems prepare students for success and save the schools money. Can you afford not to adopt these changes?
