An effort by the Australian government launched in 2007 to provide one-to-one technology for students has been achieved nationally. However, government funding for the programme is being phased out, and schools are now faced with finding ways to replace the aging technology on their own. Officials say one option -- driven by the lower costs of technology and its availability -- is to adopt bring-your-own-technology programmes, although some critics say such programmes can create equity issues among students.
Should Australian schools launch bring-your-own-technology programmes?
