Elon’s outstanding classroom technology featured in EdTech magazine

EdTech, a magazine focused on technology applications in education, features Elon University in its September/October edition. The article, titled “Building the Smarter Classroom,” says that Elon is “taking instructional technology to the next level,” with “pioneering collaborative classrooms and teaching students real-world skills.”

EdTech notes that about 200 of Elon’s classrooms are equipped with technology beyond wired and wireless network access.

Joe Davis, Elon’s assistant director of campus technology support for classrooms, told the magazine that, “over the past decade, we’ve systematically added technology in traditional classrooms until it’s become ubiquitous and standardized.”

Also quoted in the article are Christopher Waters, assistant CIO and director of teaching and learning technologies; Peter Felten, assistant provost and director of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning; and Rebecca Pope-Ruark, assistant professor of English. In a sidebar story, senior Nick Friederich discussed an advanced document camera that was used to present an Android application he was creating as part of a computer science class.
