"Smart Computing"--Orienting Your Students.
Millis, Paul J.
This paper discusses how to present new college students with their initial exposure to policy, security, and ethical computing issues. The Office of Policy Development and Education participates in summer orientation to introduce students to proper use of information technology resources at the University of Michigan. This presentation is known as "Smart Computing." Video vignettes were created to highlight key issues for incoming students. This paper examines the creation of the "Smart Computing" presentation. Discussion includes: objectives of the presentation; audience psychology; development of the presentation; adaptation of the presentation; student attitudes and reaction; other venues for presentations; lessons learned; and planning for the next orientation.
