All is very good, but it would fantastic if there was a laptop purchasing program fitted strategically based on student income.
I would encourage all instructors to make use or allow more use of the devices that would make it helpful to learn in class.
Keep up the wonderful work you do to help those of us succeed in our educational journey.
Older teachers need to get with the age of technology and just because I am taking notes with iPad or iPhone to be able to project on Apple TV later to review notes on big screen later does not mean I am texting. Personally, I have not even enabled iMessage on my iPad so not to be accused of texting.
Technology is a very important part of learning and I feel Tri-C is doing well to embrace the mechanisms and stay competitive with technologic advances.
