This is a 20 minute session. This session will take place from 1:45 - 2:05 pm.

Kids these days... they are so busy tweeting, snapchatting, IMing, and texting, we assume they are tech wizards. After all, most of what they do these days is on some sort of electronic device. What happens then when they enter your class and can't figure out how to access the etext? In this session, we will discuss how to organize your class and introduce digital tools to your students without the assumptions we sometimes can have due to the digital world they live in. A blueprint for a successful first day of classes, whether that is online or face-to-face, will be provided, as well as some tools audience members can take with them to use in their classroom, virtual or otherwise. An interactive discussion will also be included to see what tools the audience uses, what kind of feedback they have received on them, and how we can make those that met with less than enthusiastic responses more successful. Meeting students where they are also means understanding what tech knowledge they have; this session will provide the pathway to this. VIEW THIS SESSION [Mediasite player]
