According to a popular study, 95% of adolescents own a cell phone and 45% are online almost constantly. When Cellphones Come To School, a new very timely, informative and provocative one hour documentary from high school teacher and EdD Leadership Program alumni Anne Tran, shows what happens when these phones predictably end up in classrooms and the impact on learning that results. Featuring interviews with a diverse range of students, teachers and experts, When Cellphones Come To School, highlights both positive and negative outcomes and points the way toward creating a better understanding of the national debate around the role cellphones might and do play in classroom education settings.

College students over the age of 25 are often overlooked in efforts to increase student success. Yet, adult learners make up over one-third of all undergraduate students. Adult learners have distinct challenges when pursuing their education. In addition to balancing coursework with jobs, many adult learners have family responsibilities/roles and other layers that make up who they are as a student. Watch the recording of our Lurie College Student Success Center’s workshop “Thriving at SJSU as an Adult Learner: Part 1” which focused on navigating the 4-year system.
