Technology Is In the Hands of Our Students: Where Is It in the Classroom?
Presented by Sarah Cheverton
Today’s popular technology is, literally, in the hands of our students. It may be in a figurative sense as well. What do students’ current technology practices tell us about what tools to use in the classroom now and in the near future? This presentation will include some facts about technology practices at JMU, real-life stories from our students about their use of technology in the academic experience, and projections about technology in the classroom of the future.
