ABSTRACT

As mobile devices continue to become a vital component of an individual’s life, it is imperative that educational institutions include mobile learning opportunities as part of the curriculum in formal education (Purcell, Heaps, Buchanan, & Friedrich, 2013). Some schools hold fast to “no cell phone” policies, while other districts are researching and piloting the implementation of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) strategies. School administrators’ apprehension in implementing this may be attributed to the lack of research available on the prevalent issues of allowing students to use their own devices in the classroom.
