ENYACRL: Putting Technology to Work

327 views

Published on

In 2010, for the first time ever smartphones outsold PC's, which includes desktops, laptops, and netbooks combined. While this means our users are (literally) a moving target, this shift in technology also creates more opportunities than ever to connect with them in ways that seamlessly integrate with the tools they are already using.

Especially in academia, there is no longer a distinction between technologies used for work and play; students might tweet as part of a group discussion while they are in class, and they keep tabs on their Facebook news feed while they research.

This presentation will explore ways to use emerging technologies to engage students in a classroom setting, facilitate offering point-of-need assistance, and help ensure users can find the information they need whenever and wherever they happen to be.
