Description

Emerging technologies provide new ways to engage students in learning activities, expanding the definition of the “classroom” as a physical space. This presentation is for instructors, staff, and administrators who are looking for ways to use technological tools to engage with students. We will discuss some of the exciting technology innovations that instructors are using now, as well as giving a preview of what is on the horizon, in the context of supporting student success. Attendees will take away a better understanding of both today’s and tomorrow’s technology, and how it can benefit students.
