To Ban or Not to Ban: What’s Your Policy on Mobile Devices in the Classroom?

Listen. Do you hear that click-press-patter of fingertips on a keyboard? Is it interrupting the lecture? Is the student taking notes or emailing a friend?

Pause for a moment. Scan the classroom. Are the downward faces tilted toward a glass screen? Does a soft glow emanate from below desks as statuses update, are liked, and text messages sent? A phone is held out. Is a picture being taken of the whiteboard and loaded into Evernote or is a video being recorded to be uploaded to Youtube.

― Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

This is a story about failure. It’s a story about learning and lofty goals; but, still, it’s a story about failure. And, the failure is all mine.

In September, I wrote a post, Lifelong Learning: MOOC’s vs Liberal Arts Colleges, and stated my intention to experiment by enrolling in both MOOC’s and a real course. Right there, did you catch that?
