Avaya Expands Work with a Growing Number of K-12 Schools on Bring Your Own Device Mobile Learning Programs
- Confronting budget constraints, K-12 schools across the U.S. are accelerating implementation of Bring Your Own Device and One-to-One Computing programs.
- Economic realities are resulting in changing policies and attitudes; more schools are favoring BYOD programs to encourage students to bring mobile devices to school.
- Avaya's device-agnostic approach and expertise in Unified Communications and Networking are cited as key factors in school district IT vendor selection.
"In the past, primary and secondary education was all about memorization. The Internet and BYOD are changing that, driving critical thinking and student creativity, fueled by wider access to information. Since our wireless network was built, new equipment has been pouring into the district every day. The influx of technology has been contagious."
