In early years, large/public schools talked about how to justify costs.  Uses they were proposing did not seem to fit liberal arts colleges.  At Haverford, debates about whether technology did have a role; whether anything was broken.
In preparing for this presentation, I thought about some of the projects that I was involved with, and how to characterize those projects and the role of technology.
Engage – an aspect of play to learning – children begin learning through play.  Experiential learning.  Interactive exhibits. Involve – Learn about classic experiments in Psychology, e.g., but wasn’t practical to recreate them in the lab at the introductory level.  Donders’ reaction time – thinking takes time.  Experiment with effect of practice, distraction from music, gender differences.
Explore – compare brain structure and size, think about function
Encourage –

Pedagogy Rules – new technology can be attractive, but must serve pedagogy
Control – faculty must own process, both development and use
Accessibility – web has improved this, but still have issues of speed, Java, etc.
Disabilities – must do better
Copyright – neverending issue, not always clear
Ownership – security
Evaluation – more formal studies of what is most effective
  - cost/benefit has improved with new dev tools, lower costs
Sharing – faculty must learn from each other what is most effective, share projects; reusable design
Challenge can become opportunities if we are open to learning from one another and sharing the results of our work.  Technologists can help that process by organizing opportunities within and among colleges.
