BYOT Information The acronym BYOT stands for Bring Your Own Technology. It is an initiative that is having an impact in business as well as education. From a user’s point of view, there are so many forms of technology devices that are capable of being customized to one’s needs and interests. As students utilize their personal technology devices, they can become more proficient with them than they are with school-owned devices. When they bring their own technology tools to school, they learn new ways to use them for learning purposes as they collaborate and interact with teachers and each other to research information, solve complex problems, create original products, and publish their work to show what they have learned.
