Description

Active Enough? Screens and Active Learning Classes

Speaker: Ian Schnee, Lecturer, Department of Philosophy

There is significant evidence that the use of phones and other screens in class negatively impact student learning. There is also a great amount of evidence that classroom response technologies (CRT), like “clickers” and Poll Everywhere, positively impact student learning. Learning technology companies and universities (including UW) have largely switched to bring-your-own device (BYOD) models of CRT. However, no one has studied whether the fact that this model necessitates screen use in class takes away from the positive benefits of the active-learning allowed by CRT. Dr. Schnee’s work is a three-year project aimed at answering that question.

Registration is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP.
