At September 18, 2014, I read the freshly pressed blog about teaching by Steve Buttry.
He allows his students to use their laptop and other gadget when attending his class. I, at some degree, agree with him. Nowadays students are very depended on their hi-tech tools and internet connections. I hope when our children starts the formal schooling, they are allowed to bring and use their gadget to make them more engaged in the class.
When I started my first lecture as a lecturer at October 24, 2017, I prohibited the use of any gadget in my class. I just don’t think that the use of gadget will be beneficial for that particular lecture. In contrast, I allowed them to use their gadget on a previous occasion when I gave them introductory lecture to one of my laboratory sessions.
