Do you know what the most common electronic device that college studentís possess? According to Joshua Bolkan, a multimedia editor for Campus Technology and The Journal, ď85% of college students own laptops while smartphones come in second at 65%Ē. If technology is becoming a common practice among our students, what are we doing as professors to incorporate it into our classrooms? How can students use technology to reflect on their work?
