School districts nationwide have implemented bring-your-own-technology programs as a low-cost solution to providing students with one-to-one access to technology, writes former English teacher AJ Juliani.

Students, he writes, have varying levels of access to technology and proficiency in using the devices, particularly for academic purposes.
