Typing is faster than writing – getting better at digital classrooms
Digital technology in the classroom often results in an ocean of frustration: the internet fails, students forget their passwords, teachers tend to be rather clumsy with devices, Facebook is (arguably) often more appealing than the PDF, etc. We’ve learned a couple of things building such products and we would like to share some of the lessons and stories from our recent experience working with a very respectable and conservative college in the UK.
Important: bring your own devices, we are doing a live demo. You will become students in a digital classroom for the duration of the talk and be able to share the pleasures and pains of students today. (GOOD!)
