Abstract—This paper reports and discusses the findings from a study exploring the use of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for teaching and learning at a university in Hong Kong. Seventy-one undergraduate students enrolled on an English course participated in the study. A pedagogical framework is proposed to guide the design of BYOD-mediated lessons, and the potential of BYOD pedagogies to support teaching and learning is examined. Learning gains from BYOD-mediated lessons are reflected in students’ assessment results. Some merits and challenges associated with BYOD-mediated learning are emerged from students’ focus group responses. The findings contribute to an expanded understanding of the BYOD experience across educational settings.
