Transcript ALL ABOUT THE GADGETS By Hiba Adi Every year, a new technological device makes its debut. People flock to the stores to obtain the latest piece of technology that will make their life easier or more entertaining. From the Wii to the Ipad, hundreds of people line up in front of stores for hours to purchase the newest toy. But these devices are now not only affecting our daily lives but have begun to infiltrate the classrooms. Professors have started to use the newest technology available as a tool to improve communication between their students and as a teaching device. Smartphones like the Blackberry and iPhone or laptops have made the younger generation familiar with communicating in a faster pace while possibly making it more difficult for professors who are not keeping up to date. Kayla Cormier, a public relations junior, said she thinks professors should adjust and use technology more to teach, because they too can share assignments and documents quickly. "It is a way for teachers to show content in an attention-grabbing way," she said. "I had classes where we did writing blogs to promote class participation, and it really helped me." Cormier said, ultimately, teachers' responsibility is to get their material and message out to students in the most effective way, and technology is becoming the way to achieve this. "I believe it is time to embrace technology in the classroom," she said. Corporations plan to continue to come up with new concepts. In 2010, Apple created one of the most popular and new computers, the iPad, which features applications where students can download their schoolbooks for cheaper. A group of UH professors have gathered 30 Jack J. Valenti School of Communication students to participate in a UH iPad Mobile-Learning Pilot Program and Research Study, which was launched last fall. UH students have not only grown accustomed to using smartphones and laptops; they now expect companies to continue creating new gadgets. "I like being a part of this technology savvy generation, because I am able to see and operate new technologies that are innovative and available each year," psychology senior Ann Pham said. "The bad side is that we are stereotyped as being lazy for depending on technology to do everything for us. We are sometimes even seen as spoiled for wanting the new gadget that is available."
