You’ve tried participation marks, rules in the course outline, directly asking students to put phones away, but the itch is there: they seem to have to be connected to social media 24/7. How can we minimize such distractions?

Alternatively, we know that many students have supercomputers in their pockets. Shouldn’t we take advantage of that? How? What are the opportunities offered by these technologies?

Join us for a lively discussion around engaging students in ways that take their minds off social media and keep them on what matters in your course.
