How do you use LaunchPad? I use LaunchPad as my course management system, to keep students on track with their assignments, and to help save the planet.
Advice on using technology with students: Introduce students to technology slowly. As you incorporate each assignment, take some time out of your class to show students how to work that particular part of the platform you're working with. Help them to feel comfortable. We may think our students are tech savvy, but many of them are not, so it's important to introduce technology in a comfortable environment.
