Technology & The Law: What Schools Need to Know-Emerging Issues Relating to BYOT

discuss best practices, policies, and some potential (and actual) missteps made by schools implementing BYOT initiatives.
Mike Dishman is an associate professor in the Department of Leadership at Kennesaw State University and co-author of the forthcoming Educational Technology
and the Law (Rowman Littlefield Education). Mike is a practicing school law attorney and the co-author of six (6) books on education law, policy and leadership.
