Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The paper reports on a study aiming at exploring the impact of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative on supporting learners to develop the dimensions of personal and social reflective engagement at a higher education institution. Participants who were 26 in-service teachers for a five-week professional development programme on e-Learning brought and used their own portable computing devices to support their reflective engagement. The study found that the learners perceived that the initiative could help them better manage learning process, and enhance their group interaction and experience sharing with peers and teachers for knowledge construction. These results imply that the BYOD initiative can promote learners to be engaged in personal and social reflective inquiry.
