School Daze

Had my first faculty meeting at Boston University tonight.  Interesting take from my new colleagues on not encouraging students to bring electronic devices into the classroom.

As a professor, I feel like a major goal is to prepare my students for the real world.  And in the real world, we have access to our gadgets!  In meetings, at our desks, etc. etc.  My plan is to ask the students to turn their devices…ON!  We’ll see how it works out.

Hopefully by the time my kids reach college, having iPads and other gadgets in the classroom will be the norm, not the exception.
