Universities all around the world are grappling with how to handle students and their use of various technologies. They have run into some issues in terms of how to determine what the university student should be expected to bring with them, and what they may be using those technologies for. Obviously, no school wants to discourage their students from using technologies that will aid in their learning of the subject material.
Many would argue at this point that the modern day university professor should be well equipped to manage some of the newer technologies that we (and more importantly students) are using. It is the common belief now that a classroom without modern technology is not the kind of classroom that today’s students are going to want to be a part of. Thus, many professors now are needing to learn more about the technologies that are being used by students.
