Wrangling Student Devices

Date: 9:00am - 10:15am PDT May 22, 2014

Over 95% of our students own laptops and over 75% own a tablet or smartphone.  More often than not, they use one or more of these devices in class.  These personal devices lack consistency and often do not work the same way when students try to use them in class to interact with equipment, capture data, or even access online materials.  We’ll discuss what you, as faculty, can do to take control over your students’ screen time in the classroom. We’ll also discuss how you might incorporate mobile devices into the curriculum and how to (as the title suggests) wrangle your students’ devices.
