In the Graves County High School library, Amanda Henderson introduces a group of the school’s teachers to the new Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD program. Henderson is Graves County’s District Technology Integration Specialist. The BYOD program she’s discussing is a simple solution to a common problem. Schools need to keep their educational resources up to date, but lack the money to continually refresh them. Henderson says ideally, they would provide every student with their own computer, but in reality, it’s just not feasible.

In a world of ever growing technology and global interconnectivity, privacy and security are increasingly rare commodities.  Richard Thieme is an author and lecturer who addresses the challenges posed by these new technologies, including the personal, and even spiritual transformations people undergo as they adapt to a new world.  He spoke this week at a technology summit at Murray State University.  Gary Pitts sat down with him to talk about the dangers of interacting with technology, and how to meet those challenges.
