One only has to take a few steps onto campus before seeing students engaged with the latest technologies. Just last week, I saw a student sitting by the memorial statue of Uncle Bud, talking on his cellphone while occupied with his laptop. Students are using computer technology now more than ever before, but is there transference into the classroom? I took to the sidewalks of Harding’s campus last Friday, amidst the festivities of Homecoming 2011 and found a student eager to share her use of technology in her classes.
Bravo to the faculty, who both eagerly and apprehensively integrate technology into their courses. Your investment of time and energy will help prepare students for the global 21st century. It is great to be at Harding!
