My classroom policy concerning technology is directly related to my attendance policy, and it is that the classroom is a learning environment tied to mutual respect and communication. I do not actively police technology use in my classroom, but I encourage you to engage in behaviors that do not disrupt anyone else’s learning experience — for instance, if you need to take a phone call, step outside rather than answering that call in the middle of the room. As much of this course involves active workshop time and we are in a lab classroom, I am flexible about what technology you use to get your work done. If you wish to use your own computers rather than the lab computers, you are welcome to do so, and likewise for tablets, phones, etc. As above, as long as you are respectful of my time and the time of your colleagues, you may work as you please, knowing that the quality of your work and your time management is your responsibility.
