Abstract

This paper reports on a study aiming at examining the affordances of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) for varied pedagogical practices from teachers’ perspectives in higher education. Seventeen teachers from eight departments and centers participated in the one-year study. The affordances and constraints of BYOD were examined under the “framework of affordances and constraints in BYOD-supported learning environment”. Data collection included class observations, class videos, field notes, resources on the BYOD website and teaching plans. Content analysis was adopted in the data analysis. The research findings identified seven types of BYOD conceptualized affordances. Discussions are made. Copyright © 2015 Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education.
