Controversial Laptops (cont)

 65 181891060 F48E9Abdd9 MWhile I’m sitting in a coffee shop in the GasLamp District, taking a break from the 12 block walk between my hotel and the convention center, Jim Heynderickx is sitting at PDX airport, waiting for his flight to San Diego.
Jim is making good use of his time, posting a very interesting blog about a session he participated in recently about laptops in the classroom. In his post, he lists points taken in the session from three different positions:

  • Position I: Student Laptops are Unnecessary
  • Position II: Student Laptops Are Inevitable
  • Position III: Student Laptops Are Essential

It was an interesting post, and an interesting way to handle a controversial issue. Read the post and comment. Jim will also be presenting on 1:1 initiatives at NECC tomorrow at 2:00 in room Room 32 A/B. So go check out his session. Or not! I’m presenting at the same time in room 6F.
