Professor Schelly Engelman: "ECE120 had a very introductory lesson to the use of Pinterest to locate and research ideas and activities for their 8 Teacher-Made Materials assignments. Since being exposed to Pinterest, many students have started following LCCC Teacher Education, Melanie Wursta, and myself. They have also started to re-pin several ideas to their own Pinterest boards. What a great way to share information and collaborate!"
Professor Judy Brown-Dupaul: "In my 210 class, only 20 percent of students have iPads or experience with them. When students were able to open and critique math and science apps based on a hierarchy of amount of active learning, creative thinking and problem solving, students had hands-on experience in recognizing that quality apps are not simply electronic worksheets. They also quickly realized that they spent more time on apps with topics that interest them; this recognition that children show longer attention spans and learn more when they study topics that interest them is a key objective for the course."
