In many Hong Kong WhatsApp Number List BYOD (bring your own device), AVEC in French (Bring Your Personal Communication Equipment) is becoming the rule. Behind this acronym, it is simply necessary to understand the fact of using his personal portable equipment (computer, tablet, smartphone) within the framework of his work for remuneration. BYOD therefore allows the employer to reduce the management of the equipped fleet. Thanks to the few tens of euros per month in exchange, the employee can therefore renew his equipment approximately every 3 to 5 years. This practice is more and more widespread in companies in France.
In fact, at present, the problem is often reversed, in many establishments (public as well as private), the solution has been to make one position available per class. The equipment is therefore available in the establishment: computer in the classrooms, in the teachers’ rooms, in the computer rooms. The question of a material available to a teacher in a personal way did not arise. However, we understand the limits of this The use of one computer per class therefore seems an outdated logic. The provision for teachers of their computer equipment therefore becomes a central issue. Indeed, teachers, in the public and the private sector, are civil servants (or contractors) of National Education.
One post per teacher or one post per class
In this section, we will mainly deal with private establishments under contract with the State. Indeed, this form of BYOD is more complex to set up for public establishments which depend on the department for the college and the region for the high school. The area of competence of a head of public education establishment is limited compared to that of the private sector. As a result, even if this is not their role a priori, some private establishments sometimes provide teachers with free equipment which is loaned to them during the school year. In some cases, the solution is mixed:
The teacher has the software he needs (there is no longer a problem of missing software on certain workstations or unrealized software updates that cannot be resolved by the teacher himself because he does not have administration rights) The teacher can use the same computer at any time, at school or at home. He has access to all resources everywhere If WiFi is deployed in the school, it can easily use the Internet in the establishment In class, the teacher can connect to the video projector with the facilities present: Chromecast wireless or cable with HDMI socket.
The emergence of the first forms of BYOD
A BYOD at the national level: the bonus of 150 € net of the National Education This theme of access to a workstation has become all the more central with the total confinement of last spring and the partial at the end of 2020. Indeed, historically, teachers were given priority to equip themselves with supplies ” inexpensive ”from the stationery. The jump into digital technology leads them to buy much more expensive equipment. The confinement has led to this awareness by the National Education of the needs on the ground.
The user often pays more attention to his equipment than to common equipment As a result, the National Education is trying a first national approach towards BYOD with the establishment of a computer equipment premium of 150 € net each January 1 from January 1, 2021 (decree and order). The agents are paid this bonus “for the computer equipment which they acquire to carry out their missions”. We note that with 150 € / year we do not go very far but the logic begins to settle that a computer must be provided to a teacher as to a classic agent or employee because it is a central working tool for practice his profession.
