Why We Should Build Classes Around Mobile Tech -Toni Fuhrman, Campus Technology

Using an app he created, in classes he has configured around mobile technology, Ronald Yaros is preparing his students for a future that will revolve around their technological skills. "Today's students are tomorrow's information producers and consumers," said Yaros, who is an associate professor at the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism. "In the past five years, we have seen tectonic changes in how younger people adopt, adapt, and utilize mobile technology for virtually every aspect of their lives. For the next five years, I'm interested in how evolving technology will continue to change the ways in which users interact with information." According to Yaros, without a systemic change in how we engage students in and outside of class, technology can be — and often is — viewed as getting in the way of learning. http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/09/08/why-we-should-build-classes-around-mobile-tech.aspx
