  • This slide from Poll Everywhere looks fine when viewed in the PPT show mode - but doesn't render properly when in PPT edit mode. 55% said to ban cell phones from the classrooms, and 45% said to use them for learning.

  • I don't want to redo the slide show to fix this slide. Notice that the text for #2 spilled over to the next line. It should then say that 12% edited a wiki, 5% created a podcast, and 78% have done none of the above.

Digital or print only? </li></ul><ul><li>How often have you used an index, table of contents, or the Dewey Decimal system in the past month? </li></ul><ul><li>How often do you use Google? </li></ul><ul><li>How often do you use Wikipedia? </li></ul><ul><li>How often have you asked questions about the answers that you found? Who did you ask? </li></ul>
  • 67. How are Students Different Today? <ul><li>For recent high school grads: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Films have never been X rated, only NC-17. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Tonight Show has always been hosted by Jay Leno and started at 11:35 EST. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Caller ID has always been available on phones. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There have always been charter schools. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>GPS satellite navigation systems have always been available. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Radio stations have never been required to present both sides of public issues. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clarence Thomas has always sat on the Supreme Court. </li></ul></ul>Source: Beloit College Mindset List: College Class of 2012
