“Bring your own Technology,” or BYOT, has become a viable possibility in K-12 classrooms over the past several years with the proliferation of smart phones, tablets, and other Wi-Fi capable devices. While some districts resist the notion of allowing students to use their own devices, others are embracing it, and expect teachers to well utilize technology in their classrooms. Teacher educators and pre-service teachers alike must begin the process of learning to incorporate these learning devices when thinking about how to educate 21st century learners into the teacher education curriculum. This paper highlights one teacher educator’s attempt to begin the scaffolding of teacher candidates to move towards BYOT thinking and TPACK considerations in their own K-5 classroom contexts.
