On average, today's college students bring 2 digital devices to their learning environment. These devices present both an opportunity and an obstacle to learning. The opportunity is to engage the students through their devices, to use the technology to help students achieve higher academic outcomes, and to collect meaningful, actionable data on what is occurring during the "learning moment". The potential obstacle is competing with their social connections via their digital devices. This presentation will address both subjects, and demonstrate how the presenter has overcome the obstacle and embraced the opportunity.
