Abstract—Digital technologies are becoming an integral part of education. This study aims to quantify the effect of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) on student behaviour, welfare and learning using a sample of Jordanian learners engaged in the study of economic disciplines. Data from the questionnaires were analyzed using Student’s t-test. According to the results of the study, participants in the educational process generally recognize the positive effect of BYOD initiatives on learning and support their implementation. Female students reported negative effects of BYOD on their behaviour more often than male students. Combining BYOD with a traditional learning approach was more effective than implementing the BYOD mode alone. Teachers with prior BYOD experience generally rated higher on the learning scale than those using BYOD for the first time. The present findings might be helpful for university teachers and administrators who want to implement a BYOD program; the learning discipline does not matter.
