The use of technology is not only permitted in this course—in many instances, it will be required. I do not ordinarily police your technology use in class, even when we’re not using it for a specific class activity. I do, however, ask that you be courteous. Please be sure that your cell phone is set to silent (not vibrate, which can actually be quite loud), and that your technology use does not become a distraction to yourself or others (bear in mind that anyone sitting near you can probably see what’s on your screen).
I reserve the right to request that you put your device(s) away if I get the sense that you’re not paying attention or that you’re distracting those around you.
