Switzerland > Other Issues Switzerland > Other Issues

Over the last years in Switzerland, there has been a significant shift in the discussions from 1:1 device to BYOD. Besides this, cloud-computing is currently a very relevant topic.

Although not a pedagogical question, cloud-computing is important for the discussions taking into consideration issues of property rights, authorization, authentication and personal data (legal aspects and security matters). For Swiss stakeholders in the education field, cloud-computing should be granted higher attention since more and more students are bringing their own devices to schools. And, despite this growing trend, potential issues remain unobserved at teacher or student levels.

To gather data on this and further the discussion, the Swiss Agency for ICT in Education (SFIB-CTIE) is working in collaboration with partners within teacher training institutions as well as other stakeholders in the education scenario from all regions of the country.
