Presentation to the EWMA Conference, May 15th 2014, as part of the 'teacher network'.

Students are connected today more than they have ever been, whether it is with friends or family, or with their teachers or community leaders. The computing devices that they hold in their pockets or backpacks have as much computing power as NASA had when it put the first man on the Moon. But how do we, as educators, manage the use of these devices in the classroom? How can we be sure that they are not being used to update Facebook profiles, sending tweets or chat-messages, playing games,, planning social events or a work shift, etc.? How can we engage the disengaged and bring their connections and connected lives into the classroom?

Through a use of examples, case studies, and research, this session will look at what is being done to encourage the use of mobile devices in the classroom, it will consider the benefits and pitfalls of engaging students with ‘bring your own device’, and it will provide an opportunity for discussion around where these connections can, or should, lead.

  • STRATEGIES FOR ENGAGING STUDENTS – WHERE WILL TECHNOLOGY LEAD US?
    David Hopkins, Warwick Business School.
    Students are connected today more than they have ever been, whether it is with friends or family, or with their teachers or community leaders. The computing devices that they hold in their pockets or backpacks have as much computing power as NASA had when it put the first man on the Moon. But how do we, as educators, manage the use of these devices in the classroom? How can we be sure that they are not being used to update Facebook profiles, sending tweets or chat-messages, playing games,, planning social events or a work shift, etc.? How can we engage the disengaged and bring their connections and connected lives into the classroom?
