My #gafesummit Device Policy

I have a device policy for my #gafesummit sessions. It came to me right at the start of one of my sessions, and I've decided that it's how I want my sessions to run from now on.

If you have a device:

  1. It cannot stay in your pocket. Take it out, turn it on.
  2. You need to use it.
  3. If you want to snap a picture, do it.
  4. If you want to tweet it out, do it.
  5. If you want to post to instagram, do it.
  6. If you want to look something up, do it.
  7. If you want to text your friends, go ahead.
The point is, if you have a device with you, I want to see it being used. You've got so much power and knowledge just sitting there, ready to be harnessed. It shouldn't be relegated to your pocket. Bring it out, and get more out of your learning by using it.

That is all.
