This challenge is exacerbated by the fact that.. ...digital literacy is less

Discuss any pros or cons you see with the technologies that you select as well as individual experiences you may have had with these or other technologies
Identify some needs that you think you might be able to address with these or other technologies What are the challenges to implementing this technology (training, maintenance, funding)?
Who (if anyone) do you need to talk to on your campus to be able to implement these things?
How would you communicate the value of the technology to the different people you encounter on a regular basis (students, parents, colleagues, faculty, administrators, etc.)? Then, discuss how it could be implemented. Work in Groups of 2 or 3. Discuss pros and cons... Christian Speedling Samantha Martin privacy concerns technology quickly

Information technologies are having a significant impact on how people work, play, gain information, and collaborate. Increasingly, those who use technology in ways that expand their global connections are more likely to advance, while those who do not will find themselves on the sidelines…teaching and scholarship are transcending traditional borders more and more all the time.
