Teaching and learning about technology: An exploration for first-year students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, the presenters will describe and review the use of Sherry Turkle's book Reclaiming Conversation as a basis for a freshman-only, cohort-building course in Intercultural Community Building (HDFS 287Y). The objective of the course is to build cultural awareness and competence and this session will describe how the instructors did so through promoting students' mindful exploration of the impact of technology use on themselves, relationships, education, and society. Student impacts and reflections will offer insight into the baseline technology use, the pedagogical strategies used to address course content, and the overall impact of this embedded exploration.
