Students Assess Professors’ Classroom Technology

A recent article explored different uses of classroom technologies. New classroom technologies that professors enthusiastically attempt rarely get the warm welcome and acceptance from students that instructors may hope for. When products are gimmicky or a waste of class time because they are difficult to use, students tend to be even less receptive of its addition to the classroom.

The Chronicle invited four tech-savvy students to weigh in on the best—and worst— moments in classroom technology they have seen. Using the Google Plus video chat feature, a discussion was held to sound off on students’ thoughts on classroom technology usage.

Check out the highlights from the discussion and all of the details regarding the study here.

Instructors, what different technologies have you tried in your classroom? Have your students been particularly receptive or opposed to any technologies? Sound off in the comments section!
