Engaging Students Through Technology Symposium 2010 Student Panel: Note-taking and Technology
Student panelist Thomas Jansen, former photo editor for 34th Street Magazine, web development editor for The Daily Pennsylvanian, and lab consultant at the Vitale Digital Media Lab, highlights the inefficiencies of note-taking with technology. We live today in a state of 'continuous partial attention'. Instant access to people and information can both engage and distract us. New tools break down classroom boundaries and change the nature of college education. This year's symposium explores the creative ways faculty are integrating technologies into teaching, the challenges they face, and the disruptive nature of mobile technologies in lecture contexts.
