Critical Conversation: BYOD - Smart phones and tablets in the workplace

The second in a series of critical conversations:

BYOD or “bring your own device” describes the phenomenon of people using their personal technology devices in the workplace. The issues around personal smartphones and tablets in the workplace vary depending on your perspective. For users, there is a freedom and convenience to use a single device that they choose and carry to perform their work functions. For the institutional information technology staff, issues arise concerning security, support, and privacy.

Kevin Gamble will do a short introduction and then facilitate a conversation among a panel about these issues, including questions and comments from attendees.

Panelists:
Werner Gade, University of Wisconsin Colleges
Neal Vines, Penn State
Ashley Fondrem, MIssissippi State
Mark Hendricks, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

This critical conversation will be conducted as a Google+ Hangout On Air. Attendees can view and participate in the conversation on the Google+ Event page (linked below) or on the Network Literacy CoP YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/NetworkLiteracyCoP).
