Lloyd Onyett, assistant dean for Technology in the College of Education and Educational Technology, will give two presentations at the Educause technology conference in Baltimore on May 1, 2014: “DisplayNote: Class Collaboration System for BYOD” and “Supporting Faculty in the Classroom.”
The “DisplayNote” presentation will demonstrate the DisplayNote software that allows faculty and students to use a mixture of iPads, Android tablets, PCs, and Macs in a collaborative mode. DisplayNote allows faculty to display apps from their tablet to the classroom computer and projector as they move around the classroom, gives faculty the ability to view and display students’ screens to the projector, lets faculty control and annotate a PowerPoint, and allows students to capture and annotate the faculty presentation on their device. The system can also be used to pose questions and receive responses from students.
The “Supporting Faculty in the Classroom” session will be a roundtable discussion of various ways that we can support faculty by providing various types of technology (software and hardware) as well as training. Onyett will share information about our College Technology Day and the various sessions that provide opportunities for faculty and staff to learn about new types of technology and how they can be used in education.
