Technology: This presentation will address ways in which the cell phone, I-Pad, or laptop can become a tool for classroom learning rather than a distraction. Students in my courses use their cell phones or other portable technology (i.e. I-Pads, laptops) during class to actively look up information, to complete Google Form surveys or partner activities, to take and upload pictures to use in class discussion, and to engage in quick assessments of learning and review of presentation content using Kahoot!.
Evidence: Students get excited when given instructions to login to a Kahoot! They quickly complete internet searches when directed to do so and share the results of their search with the class, increasing their classmates' learning. Students willingly engage in classroom activities involving the use of their own technology and pay close attention during related class discussion.
Broader Impacts: Actively using cell phones and computers in the classroom teaches students how to use their everyday technology to increase learning which hopefully will extend outside of the classroom as well. Direct connections are made between course topics and how/why we are using technology in a particular way.
