Track: Learning & Teaching Innovations

Breakout Session III
Thurs 11:45 am – 12:45 pm

Abstract
Students today use cloud technology for many personal applications. Students need to understand how this technology works in order to be prepared for the global workplace. Instructors can enhance their courses with cloud technology so students can efficiently use their time, maximize their effort and learn valuable skills that are being used in the business world today. We will demonstrate how innovations offered by cloud computing can be integrated into established learning environments and address issues raised by the impact of mobility and cloud computing in the classroom. The goal of the presenters is encourage a dynamic discussion that shares ideas and methods for introducing students to cutting edge technology innovations.
