Acer Computer Australia has launched its BYOD Education Project, based on eight months of research with education stakeholders, designed to provide guidance for schools and parents on managing the bring your own device issue.In launching the project today, Acer noted, with government funding for the Digital Education Revolution ceasing in 2013, schools now encourage students to bring their own devices, with education institutions in turn faced with matching “curriculum outcomes with network requirements and student – and parent – expectations and budgets”.

The project is designed to assist in providing a structured approach with regard to devices being brought into school environments, transitioning from the problems occurring when there is little control over devices.

Acer states “Bring Your Own Designated Device” (BYODD) is a “structured approach under which schools can set brand, operating system and security specifications”.

Acer’s white paper for schools lays out a number of factors required for “BYOD success”, and examines the pros and cons of various devices, from ultrabooks to tablets, with different devices suiting different students needs.

A website dedicated to the project can be found here.

“Acer’s unique approach to the education sector recognises that schools, universities and TAFEs have very different objectives to businesses and government,” Darren Simmons, Acer Computer Australia managing director, commented.

“We and our skilled authorised education partners understand that technology has to be intelligently implemented to improve the education outcomes of students – that’s the primary goal.”
