The Swivl Robot is a device upon which a smartphone, tablet or video camera can be mounted. The instructor wears a lanyard that the robot tracks so that the camera can follow them. The lanyard also includes a wireless microphone. Ken Fogel has been using this system starting in October 2015 to record his lectures and student presentations. At this presentation Ken will present the Swivl system and its software tools. Ken will talk about his experience with the system and the experience of his students.

New | Technopedagogical Capsules

According to the CBC, "we have seen a seismic shift in the way we value the traditional way to teach... [ It ] began with the advent of computers, smart phones and tablets; then veered to learning from professors on screens, the proliferation of virtual classrooms and the launch of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses.)" This session explores more immediate issues that affect teaching in higher education, suggests ways that technology can support faculty in meeting those broader challenges, and closes by explaining why technology for teaching is about teaching first, technology second.
