BYOD: Are you paying attention?

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Thursday 24th October, 2013

1:00pm to 1:45pm (EST)

Canadian Media Theorist Marshall McLuhan once said, “We shape our tools and they shape us”. The mobility of tablets, smartphones, and laptops have turned these devices into extensions of ourselves. Are you prepared to handle the distraction they present and leverage best practices in the classroom? Find out how to cue student attention and implement tools that will help students focus and put them in a state of flow. This session looks at embedding course content management systems, social media platforms, and augmented reality tools in the classroom.
