The Rules of Engagement
Raths, David
Campus Technology, v26 n8 p27-30 Apr 2013
There is a civil war simmering in classrooms nationwide. Arrayed on one side are students who would sooner cut off an arm than sacrifice their mobile devices. On the other stand faculty members who expect to be the focal point of their classes and will not abide distractions. Caught in the crossfire are instructional technology professionals. Charged with promoting technology use in class, they often end up keeping an uneasy peace. This article asks the question: "Is there a middle ground where collaborative learning can actually take place?" This is the sixth and final installment in "Campus Technology's" series on collaborative learning. The other titles in the series are: (1) Highly Collaborative Classroom Furniture; (2) Enhancing Coursework with Social Tools; (3) Collaborating via Web Conference; (4) Togetherware: Tools for Teamwork; and (5) Devices to Spur Interaction.
