Changing Perspective: Using Student Voices to Advance Learning Technology
Different perspectives lead to creative solutions. The process of implementing any learning technology can be complicated, raising new problems. Actively including a student's perspective in the planning can help advance these projects. The annual ECAR study of students and technology can provide you with insights into student motivations and interests related to technology. This study provides a big picture that can be used to form new ideas or support investments in new methodologies such as flipped classrooms or online courses. This session will explore practical examples of how to use this study and information for how you can get involved.
