I really like this idea…what if we had kids build their own devices instead of providing them? Now that we have what ostensibly is a $5 computer, wouldn’t it be cool if our students worked out ways to create devices that could serve them in their learning? I mean, as Matt says, i know there are limitations. But BYOD in this sense fits nicely with the constructionist, makerist ways of thinking about learning that new technologies afford.
Anyone doing this, I wonder?
