Do you find students are increasingly inattentive in lecture, choosing to attend to their smartphones or laptops rather than being present in the classroom? Or perhaps you welcome the use of technology and choose to incorporate smartphones and social media into your teaching? Either way, the consequences of an increasingly “plugged-in” student population will no doubt have an influence on our teaching.

Come join Kim Hellemans (Neuroscience), Bruce Tsuji (Psychology), Deanna Whelan (Psychology), Bill Skidmore (The Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies), Justin Paulson and (Sociology and Anthropology) to engage in a lively discussion over the use of cell phones, social media and the digital world in the classroom.
