Technology at the Trailing Edge.
Currie, David; Russell, Rob; Powers, Laraine; Bowers, Julie
This paper concerns itself indirectly with the, as yet, unfounded fear held by many instructors: that relative to their students, they are computer illiterate. To the contrary, faculty teaching information technology designated classes in the Department of Health Sciences at East Tennessee State University have found that they are pacing themselves ahead of the students. While most students are anxious to jump forward into the computer age, there are some who are against it that must be motivated. This paper describes the authors' attempts to create an environment in which reluctant or disinterested students are compelled to make a small, but active effort to use computers very early in the semester. This sets the tone for such students to be pulled into the larger, more comfortable and very creative atmosphere of student-based technology sharing. (Author/AEF)
