Meta-Teachnition Assignment #1
Consider your own experience with the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) idea. How has it changed your classroom experience? How has it changed your 'learning' experience? How has it influenced those around you (don't use names please)? Are you comfortable with it? Is ti too much of a distraction? Write 250 - 500 words to describe your experience. We will post these in a discussion forum that has been created in Desire2Learn - go to
Use your UM Jump or UM email login. There is an option there for you to place your file in the Dropbox if you do not want others in teh class to see it.
