Technology in the classroom
Intimate classrooms, study abroad programs, and internship opportunities have long been milestones in the Hiram College journey. In 2017, the College added a comprehensive mobile technology program as yet another marker to help students forge their path to the degree and beyond. The new program is dubbed Tech and Trek™, and its primary aim is to teach students how to creatively and critically use technology to enhance the learning that takes place on and off campus.
As part of those enhancements, Tech and Trek™ puts an iPad, Apple Pencil, and keyboard bundle into the hands of every full-time traditional and adult studies student for academic and personal use. Hiram was the first four-year college or university in Ohio to introduce an Apple technology program of this kind. Hiram graduates will enter their careers with the academic, technological, and critical thinking skills required for 21st-century workforce.
To assist students in utilizing these tools in and out of the classroom, Hiram College has a department of dedicated staff who provide resources and guidance on finding the best technology tools to help them be successful in their Hiram College career. These tools range from the iPads themselves to the College’s learning management system, Moodle, to the College’s ePortfolio system, Digication.
Learning Technologies provides workshops, programs, classes, and other opportunities for students to learn and engage with various Hiram College technology resources.
Learning Technologies, located in the Hiram College Library in suite 222, encourages students to set up an appointment or drop-in appointments are welcome.
Learning Technologies is located in the Hiram College Library in the Student Academic Services suite (Suite 222) across from the Ask Here Desk on the main floor.
