Scott Hildebrand engages new students in a game of Family Feud.

Instructional and Campus Technologies held their 4th annual Connected @Elon event on Sunday, August 28th during New Student Orientation. Created to help incoming students learn about the technology available to them on campus, Campus Technologies staff staged a game Family Feud, complete with commercials featuring technology services.

Scott Hildebrand (Assistant Director of Teaching and Learning Technologies), Jacquie Adams (a senior from Mechanicsville, VA), and Brent Edwards (a junior from Mount Holly, NC) engaged first-year student contestants with questions about technology. The students were asked to name the top 5 things they should not do on Facebook, the apps available to them through their Google Apps for Education account, and the ways they can seek technology help.

Students walked away from the show with an understanding of the ways they can stay “Connected @ Elon.” To learn more about ways you can stay “Connected @Elon,” visit our “New to Elon” section on the Technology website.
