It’s been a great semester! Your students were at the top of their game, and you were at the top of yours. Now for the winter break.
Now is the perfect time to consider the role of technology in your courses. The first question you might consider is how are you using technology currently? Do you use Blackboard, email, netfiles or PowerPoint? If so, how are you using those technologies?

Should an institution of higher education dictate a particular technology for student use? This is the question arising around the University of Missouri School of Journalism’s decision requiring all majors to purchase and iPhone or iPod Touch. The school’s rationale for this decision is to provide students with lectures, allow the student immediate access to the Internet for fact checking and for watching instructional videos. Coming against strong pressure, the school clarified its policy to say it recommends the use of iPhones or iPod Touches but that students could use “any web-enabled, audio-video player” which meant Microsoft’s Zune or RIM’s Blackberrys.
