Nashville boasts a mild climate year round with some of the most beautiful and vibrant foliage in the country. Best known for its musical history, Nashville's The District attracts visitors with its nightclubs, bars, and restaurants. Attractions cover the spectrum from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the famous Grand Ole Opry to a priceless Picasso and a full-size replica of the Parthenon. There is something for everyone in Music City. Country music fan or not, Nashville gets your toes tapping!
Each year CIT’s Track One focuses on an emerging technology of particular interest to educators. For the 2007 CIT, Track One features Portable High-Tech Media Devices and Their Implications for Instruction. The growing consumer use of MP3 players, PDAs, cell phones, and other portable high-tech media devices raises questions about their role in improving student learning and student access to learning. How does the use of these devices change the dynamics of teaching and learning? Does instructional content linked to these devices now make them an additional de facto student purchase? How is instructional success defined and measured when using these devices? Proposals targeted toward this focus area should focus on the evaluation, adaptation, and use of portable high-tech media devices for academic purposes. Although the increased use of portable high-tech media devices is the special focus of the 2007 CIT, other proposal topics related to the emerging and future use of information technology at community and technical colleges are strongly encouraged.
