Wireless in the Classroom? Advice on Policies and Strategies
CFT educational technologist Rhett McDaniel has written a “teaching guide” on wireless Internet access in the classroom. Most students at Vanderbilt have a laptop, netbook, or smart phone that lets them access the Internet provided they have a Wifi signal. Should instructors encourage this during class? Should they discourage it? How can a wireless classroom benefit instruction without distracting students? Rhett’s guide offers advice on setting wireless policies and strategies for teaching in a wireless classroom.
