@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat is about to begin on Best Practices with Mobile Tech with @Comprof http://t.co/fuF4PK9Ja9 7/15/2014 16:06
@Comprof1 While we wait for people to find us for #adjunctchat u might want to look at BLS’s trello planning for mobile learng https://t.co/8EanA3zjbK 7/15/2014 16:06
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have tried to use Trello, though somehow do not find it intuitive for projects #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have tried to use Trello, though somehow do not find it intuitive for projects #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Perhaps you will be able to shed some light on why not! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:09
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Really? I find it very easy. Maybe its the way I think. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:10
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I found with my students, I gave assignment, with checklists. Then moved it as it came due. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I found with my students, I gave assignment, with checklists. Then moved it as it came due. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Are you a linear or spatial thinker? I tend to think spatially so trello works great. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Did you have your students use Trello with you? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I move back and forth; spatial when brainstorming and then linear once organized (and back if needed) #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Perhaps it is just the two of us for #AdjunctChat at this moment? 7/15/2014 16:14
@LitProfSuz Hey #adjunctchat, seems a little quiet today. Polar vortex got your tongue? 7/15/2014 16:15
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Yes, I used it to share resources, class activities. Esp ones where students left class room #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:16
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I also had groups set up boards for long term projects. Helped them to learn to plan. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:16
@LitProfSuz I haven’t specifically used mob tech, but am hoping to this summer. But just basic use – record & post pic/video #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:17
@Comprof1 Q 1: 1) Do you allow the use of mobile technology in your courses? Why or why not? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:17
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Glad you could make it. Maybe just the storms. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: Q 1: 1) Do you allow the use of mobile technology in your courses? Why or why not? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:19
@AdjunctChat RT @Comprof1: Q 1: 1) Do you allow the use of mobile technology in your courses? Why or why not? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:19
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Is that in class or in general? Do you permit use of tablets, smart phones, or laptop in class? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Hey, you! How are things these days? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Perhaps you will show us a bit about how you use Trello with your classes . . . 😉 #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:19
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 A1) I don’t know enough about mobile tech to design activities around it. I use it all the time personally, though #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A1: I use Twitter with my classes, though oddly find the uptake slow at times #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:20
@LitProfSuz Hmm.. maybe a definition of mobile tech would be in order. I was just thinking smart phones. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:22
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Do you let your students take notes with it? So you feel that to allow use you need more knowledge of mobile tech? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:23
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I don’t require, nor mind technology in class. Though I have asked a few students to close Facebook #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I let my students use their devices in class as well #AdjunctChat #SCPSRPM 7/15/2014 16:23
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Good point. Mobile tech can be any device that is portable. laptops, cell phones in general (not just smart phones) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:24
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Yeah, many students have some sort of tech. I intro Twitter as PLN for my pre-service teachers #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:24
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Ereaders can also be included in mobile devices. #adjunctchat Also, more recently smart pens. 7/15/2014 16:25
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Do you activitly encourage them to use the devices? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Do you activitly encourage them to use the devices? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer I found my students were looking up info more and more, so I decided to include that in class. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Some students are getting used to having e-textbooks. They made others envious with search features! :^) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I use Twitter as the base of my #PLN, though I do not use that term with my students #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:27
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Intro to Twitter is to help them develop professional networks, not so much about the technology #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:27
@Comprof1 Example of course use of trellis #adjunctchat http://t.co/HSNKHL0pz5 7/15/2014 16:29
@LitProfSuz For Intro to Child lit, stds created blogs rather than paper bibliographies 4 required text sets to allow access for classmates #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Misconception that “mobile tech” is about teaching the tech. I focus on mobility of learning #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: Example of course use of trellis #adjunctchat http://t.co/KoXxzKtxh2 7/15/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Mobile tech allows for learning outside classroom, support of learning w/ tech studnt own themselves #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Thanks for sharing that; can you unpack it a little? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:31
@LitProfSuz I use Blackboard @ 1 place & Angel @ other for online posting/discussion/etc. Feedback was I was 1 of only a few that did. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Is Trello the main tool you use online for projects and similar communication? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer BTW first time I used my smartphone camera! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:32
@KateMfD Morning #AdjunctChat, here and listening. 7/15/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer No. I also use http://t.co/3HcwqcCQdP and sometimes blackboard or facebook depending on student preference. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:33
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’d put up previews of resources for class or after/during class resources students asked for or found helpful #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:34
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I take pics of class activities/charts/white board & post for stds 2 access later. Surprises them! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer That’s what my students do also. That is a good use of mobile tech. Also, notice studts do the same #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Helps with flow of class for students who may want more detail. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 Q2 What are some challenges in using mobile technology (especially for adjuncts/contingent faculty) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:37
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer “Announcements” summarize class activities, post all handouts – absent Stdnts responsible to get it #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:37
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer I also use mobile tech to look things up on internet when I have something on projector. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD As always, we love to have you! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:38
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Great use! Also a better use of your time. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Yet another site I do not know / use #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:39
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 A2) Learning the program,each school has a different platform! And, differing institutional & student expectations #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Do you use the free or paid version? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Excellent. Where do you post them? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: Q2 What are some challenges in using mobile technology (especially for adjuncts/contingent faculty) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:40
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Time involved in updating each site. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:40
@unicasual RT @JeffreyKeefer: @rebeccagoodway @clairebrooks @tseenster @unicasual Today’s #AdjunctChat Best Practices with Mobile Tech http://t.co/fu… 7/15/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Yes. That’s why I would rather use something outside of uni’s options that I can take with me. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Yes. That’s why I would rather use something outside of uni’s options that I can take with me. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A2 One challenge I faced over the years is a “NO” from administration; many are terrified of SoMe in the world #AdjunctChat #FERPA 7/15/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz True. Although if you are teaching same course, you can replicate both. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @KateMfD Great to have you here. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:42
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Stdts have expressed dislike of multiple platforms.Want 1 stop shopping for all classes.So, I don’t go outside uni’s #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:42
@Comprof1 A2) my problem is getting students to focus on me & my directions rather than relying on tech all the time. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:43
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I haven’t been that fortunate. :^) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz My explanation is they will never have the same platform for each job they go to. often multiple in same org. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:44
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I told them they had to start learning new tech to stay current. Get used to it! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I find it unfortunate that the uni platform usually results in students losing access after the class finishes #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:46
@Comprof1 A2) I also find they expect me “on call” 24/7 Now I have online office hrs which seem to work. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:46
@KateMfD The issue raised by many #auscasuals using mobile tech is time. #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:47
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer In my places, they are open until student leaves or graduates. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz True. Then they lose access to possible pieces for job portfolio. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 I’m going to skip to Q4) What boundaries do/might you need to create for effective use of mobile technology with your students? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:48
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Good point. I hadn’t thought of that before. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Problem with FERPA. All student work is wiped.#adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:49
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I think having authentic purposes for using tech, not just tech for tech sake. Integrated into real-life learning #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:49
@KateMfD This is a fantastic blog by @rebeccagoodway on time, edtech and expectations. http://t.co/zLX7XMyXHG #AdjunctChat #auscasuals 7/15/2014 16:49
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer If the work is on a site on their own device, they own it and can use it in the future. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:50

@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Good point. I usually develop the environment/problem and they choose the tech/device. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:51

@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD @Comprof1 I tell my students Direct Tweets are the fastest way to reach me, otherwise up to a day is not unreasonable #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:52

@katiedigc #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD Time to learn or time to use? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz That is great; in mine they usually close . . . #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:53
@darthur62 RT @katiedigc: #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:53
@Comprof1 Q4) I don’t mix my programs/devices. I have school ipad, school facebook, school email. Only twitter (professional) is merged. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:53
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer Time bleed — time available to students expands to infinity. Real pay rate plummets. #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:54

@katiedigc #AdjunctChat tho unis expect/demand that casuals and students will all have own devices and can afford Internet, software. Or can use it. 7/15/2014 16:54

@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 That is the same for me; I do not have time to do tech for its own sake #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:55
@katiedigc THIS. RT @KateMfD: @JeffreyKeefer Time bleed — time available to students expands to infinity. Real pay rate plummets. #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:55
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD That is why I give them an hour online a week. They can send emails up until then but I read then. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:55

@katiedigc #AdjunctChat teaching with social media means always being avail for students @rebeccagoodway 7/15/2014 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @katiedigc Often the case; the only students I have ever had who did not have their own tech used it at the office #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:56
@Comprof1 @katiedigc I have my students contact them! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:56
@JeffreyKeefer @katiedigc I commonly have many sudents use the computer labs at the uni to print out reports and peer review papers for me #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:56
@katiedigc #AdjunctChat and many expectations on ability of staff & students to use tech without supporting digital skills #digilit 7/15/2014 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer @katiedigc @rebeccagoodway I do wish more of my students would interact with me via social media regarding coursework #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:57
@Comprof1 @katiedigc @rebeccagoodway Not if you maintain separate account. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer @katiedigc @rebeccagoodway Oddly, many of my students do not use with me until after the course ends! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:57
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD Both! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:57
@katiedigc @Comprof1 good idea! How does institution respond to this? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:57

@Comprof1 @CliveBuckley Yes. They still sneek it. My sister told of a prof that has a “train robbery”. Student need to put hands in air. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:58
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD @Comprof1 In my excellerated class, phone text is preferred for instant notification. 1st time I tried #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:59
@katiedigc @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD good policy. I struggle w setting boundaries, esp when getting notifications on mobile #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:59
@Comprof1 @CliveBuckley “train robbery” when he calls it & student hands r up, he looks at what is on mobile. Takes it if not class relat #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 17:00
@katiedigc Glad I woke up before my alarm today, bc I can follow #AdjunctChat. #australianlife 7/15/2014 17:01
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD It’s my phone that I pay for so I don’t allow for phone texts. #adjunctchat Problem w/ groupme use by ss 7/15/2014 17:01

@Comprof1 @katiedigc Not any better than if I were to report it. But students know it’s not under my control then. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 17:02
@JeffreyKeefer @katiedigc @Comprof1 @KateMfD I do not mind notifications on mobile, though I have an unlimited data plan #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 17:03
@katiedigc @JeffreyKeefer @rebeccagoodway many pros & cons on social media in class. Torn on how effective it is, as an #auscasuals #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 17:03
@Comprof1 Boy, time went by quickly, so I’ll leave with a final question you can answer on #adjunctchat or adjunctchat FB. 7/15/2014 17:04
@JeffreyKeefer @JeffreyKeefer @katiedigc @rebeccagoodway However, I do not have conferences with my personal cell; only w/ work one or Skype #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 17:04
@katiedigc @Comprof1 Wonder how unis get away with consistently ignoring student realities while preaching “student engagement” #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 17:05
@Comprof1 Q 5) What resources would u like to have when developing activities, resources, instr design, tech or mobile use in classroom? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 17:05
@JeffreyKeefer BTW, the #AdjunctChat Facebook group is https://t.co/kWJ5afUQqy for anybody who wants to join or use it. 7/15/2014 17:05

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @KateMfD That would be great; if nothing else it can be an opportunity to try it out with somebody who knows the app! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 17:17
