    BYOD School Visit

    Morning

    We are based in West Sussex in the South and we are looking for anyone schools that have put in place a fully BYOD scheme rather than a pay into a scheme for a device. If you are one of those schools and your in the area would you be up for myself and our director of E-Learning possibly coming to visit to see how you have set yourselves up for BYOD?

    Cheers!

    I wouldn't say so much that we have a 'BYOD scheme' (in that we very much so have school owned PCs) but you would be welcome to visit us/have a chat on the phone (we're in Oxford).

    Can go over what we have for WiFi access, our guides for email/remote file access on any device (good old WebDAV!) and our Moodle VLE install.

    Sussex 6th form here - we don't have a BYOD policy but actively encourage own devices with strong wireless, making sure all our resources are webpages compatible with multiple devices and so on. Happy to talk if you want to PM

    We're having the wifi over in our 6th form block upgraded in July to enable us to roll out a BYOD scheme for them (We have also purchased a few devices for students unable to bring in devices.) It's all still very new here, but I'd be happy to put you in contact with the boss if you have any questions! (Guildford, Surrey)

    Hi,
    We're a boarding school just over the border in Surrey. We do full BYOD in all our senior school (yr 9 - yr13) boarding houses. There is wifi available in most classrooms and it is currently up to pupil's if they choose to bring their devices to lessons.

    We use Xirrus arrays, with 802.1x authentication to a central radius server and use a product called Network Sentury made by Bradford to enforce anti-virus compliance, etc.

    If you want more info, do get in touch....

    Thanks
    Jona

    Would love to have eduroam here - right in the middle of Oxford and we have uni students visiting quite often, too bad were a Secondary Academy!
