What influences our teaching and the student’s learning? Guthrie explores the use of technology in the classroom not as an instructor-led infusion but rather as a student-utilized tool. Arguing that students are immersed in technology for many other purposes already, engaging these contexts may actually serve as a form of situated learning, capitalizing on the socio-cultural context already communicated to students through their technology. Tasked with creating a video of leader interviews, students reported numerous tangential benefits beyond a factually greater understanding of the definition of leadership (the original assignment). Guthrie reports that student’s comments regarding process facets of technology use (e.g., conducting the interviews and editing the video) provided opportunities to learn leadership process, and thus offer an expanded view of what integrating technology can aim for in leadership education.
