The Luddite Instructor in the Wired Classroom: The Trials and Tribulations of Incorporating Information Technology in the Classroom
College students in the 21st century are preoccupied by their mobile devices and social media platforms. Consequently, college instructors—even the most troglodyte among them—must find a way to either work around or with this learning environment. This webinar examines how one instructor attempted to improve student engagement in the classroom by incorporating mobile devices into his classroom so students could access interactive online platforms such as Nearpod, Google Forms, Kahoot, Quizzizz, and Packback. The webinar also explores other online programs (i.e. iMovie, Powtoon, and Adobe Spark) that can facilitate improved classroom communication for today’s media savvy students.
