I understand why teachers ban phones or collect them. I get it. But I also know that banning phones can, in fact, limit student learning. Sure, there is the risk they'll spend more time playing a game or texting their friends. On the other hand, if you make the digital connections sufficiently engaging, they'll be texting or tweeting to tell their friends what a great class it's been and maybe even something about what they learned!

Engaging students in Online Courses: Adding experiential to asynchrony

Engaging students in Online Courses: Adding experiential to asynchrony | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Teaching online is a unique experience for faculty and students. Although I love the online environment for some courses, it does present its own challenges. One of those challenges is how to engage online students in activities that push them to go beyond simply reading, interpreting, and interacting. After all, the idea (in most cases) is that the student can apply their learning, knowledge, and skills in their respective fields of study. As such, we are constantly seeking ways to engage students in learning that goes beyond the “click-through” material.

In this article, I share a few ideas—starting with the simplest and working through some more complicated endeavors—that may assist you in bringing more engagement to your online classroom.
