Although school budgets have plummeted due to federal and state funding reductions, adopting Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT), may address monetary tightening while simultaneously infusing 21 st century learning. Implementing BYOT may provide real, rigorous, and relevant learning for the students while posing higher-order thinking questions from the teacher. This paper expands Williard's Pyramid (Ullman, 2011) by proposing five BYOT components with descriptions, examples, and recommendations within each. The five components are security, stakeholders, policies, professional development, and financial planning. The paper closes with future predictions as well as words of caution regarding BYOT initiatives.
