Take a look at your classroom, and you’ll surely see students with a variety of tech tools: smartphones, tablets, laptops… if they can bring it into the classroom, they likely will! Some instructors are choosing to embrace this fact, and they’ve adopted what’s often called a “bring your own device” (BYOD) approach to technology in the classroom. They incorporate technology-oriented exercises, activities, and projects designed to engage students and encourage active participation in the learning process.
