  • Apps & Social Media: Meeting Your Students Where They Are
    Social media: A fancy way to describe the zillions of conversations people are having online, 24/7. In fact, your students are more connected to people all over the world than they are to the few human beings they sit next to each day in your class. So, why not meet them where they are? This session addresses how students are using social media and computing apps, how we as educators can use apps to connect with them and what new platforms, formats and technologies are shaping how today's students are attending and completing college.
