This digital supplement provides an overview
of classroom technology that is available to
students, professors and universities, and how
it is being used in Canada. The content includes
recent articles from University Affairs magazine
and gives a sampling of the kinds of tips, strategies and guides that are available at our website,
universityaffairs.ca/careers. A new primer on the
latest e-readers in the marketplace has also
been included for students’ reference.
The classroom digital revolution
Information technology has become an
integral part of our lives, both at work and
at home. The classroom experience, too, for
both students and instructors continues to be
transformed by technology. E-readers, digital
textbooks, smart-phones, laptops, tablets,
projectors, classroom clickers and interactive
whiteboards are all being incorporated as
classroom tools for teaching and learning.
We rely on experts across the country to provide
advice that can help you understand new
technologies. The articles are easy to follow and
frequently feature links to outside sources in
case you want to know more about a new
technology, or even take it for a test drive.
Keeping up with technology trends is hard, so let
us simplify things by giving you clear, concise
and well-researched information.
