It’s no surprise that the students sitting in the back row with their cell phone in hand probably aren’t following along. We can’t be certain if they are taking notes, texting that cute girl in the next row, or contemplating their next Facebook status. Regardless of their intent, these students carry with them the technology and social connections necessary to engage each other in meaningful discussion. This presentation will explore the development of new mobile applications designed to take advantage of the mobile and social technologies students are already using. A growing interest in connection and conversation creates new opportunities to engage students both in and out of the classroom - not by creating new destinations, but by taking the conversation to where they already live.
