“At Hiram, learning extends far beyond the campus as students participate in internships, field research, service projects, and study-away trips. Through Tech and Trek™, we will challenge the notion that an increased use of technology inevitably leads to a sedentary life where students are detached from the real world around them. Tech and Trek™ will promote the ‘mindful use’ of technology by teaching students how to critically and creatively use the iPad Pro as a learning tool. This learning tool will also help Hiram students to embrace, celebrate and care for the beautiful environments that surround the campus and those they visit during experiential activities elsewhere.” - President Varlotta
