My CLAC Lightning Presentation


Yesterday I gave my lightning presentation (limited to 10 minutes) at the 2014 CLAC conference at Denison. My topic was “Are Tech Trends Driving Better Education?” My Prezi is available here. I used PollEverywhere to ask a single question, “How do you see technology influencing education at your college?” Below are the responses in word cloud (click through for large view) and list formats. I forgot to mention that the question of technology is shifting from how to use it as a means of delivery to how to use it to enhance education.  😕

Wordle: How do you see technology influencing education at your (Liberal Arts) college?
