Situated Technology as Student Tool for Leadership Instruction
Guthrie, Kathy L.
Journal of Leadership Education, v8 n1 p130-136 Sum 2009
Technology is becoming a part of students' lives more every day. How as educators can we use technology as a developmental tool instead of a distraction in the classroom? This paper frames technology in leadership instruction through situated learning, specifically how a video production course assignment provided a developmental opportunity for students in an introductory leadership course. The research reports students' perception of using technology that extends beyond the specific objective of development of a personal definition of leadership and offers a new perspective for engaging other forms of technology.
