TEDxLansing-Jim Luke: Will Plato hack the iPad?

As a Professor of Economics at Lansing Community College, Jim Luke uses creative ways such as in-class games, experiments, and narratives to engage students in complex economic ideas. During his discussion, Luke elaborates on the use of new technology such as iPads, smart phones, and YouTube in higher education. He weighs the benefits and downfalls of the use of this type of technology to educate students. Luke argues that the role of the instructor then, is to take the content from the new technology and turn it into intentional narratives in order for the students to actually learn. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
