Laptops in the Classroom – Pros and Cons

Audience: All
Technical Level: Hardhats required

Now that we have built out our infrastructure to support wide spread use of computers and wireless access to the network in the classrooms….should we turn it off?

Does the presence of laptops sometimes distract students (or the students in the next seat) from what the instructor is saying?

Is it up to the instructor to decide….or the institution?

This session may post more questions than it answers, but the discussion promises to be lively.
