symposium, 2010, student panel
Peter Decherney, Associate Professor of Cinema Studies and English, facilitated a panel discussion with Penn undergraduates about the ways in which new technologies enhance and reduce learning both in and out of class. 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.
