It provides an overview of risk management processes involving drawing up and regularly reviewing a risk, listing anticipated risks, how serious they are and how likely to occur, together with plans for how they will be avoided or mitigated.

This 'pocket guide' is developed based on the the full report, 'Bring Your Own Device for Schools: Technical advice for school leaders and IT administrators that was published by European Schoolnet as part of the work of Ministries of Education in its Interactive Classroom Working Group (ICWG), with support from Acer and GSMA.
