DigitalVU: Using technology to engage students beyond the classroom walls

by Oct. 21, 2011, 2:01 PM

Watch video of an Oct. 20 presentation “Using technology to engage students beyond the classroom walls” with Corbette Doyle and Stephanie Milne.

This session provides a hands-on look at Twitter as a tool to encourage students to think critically about course content — before, during and after class ends. To increase faculty comfort with the technology that will be discussed, the audience was encouraged to use the link below to post a question in advance of the session. Poll Everywhere, a cell phone “clicker” application that does not require advance registration, was also used in the session.

The event was part of DigitalVU month at Vanderbilt, co-coordinated by Medical Center Web and Creative Services and University Web Communications with support from the Jean and Alexander Heard LibraryInformation Technology Services and partners across campus.
