Veterans at Selective Colleges, 2017 - Opinion

Wick Sloane, a 2017 winner of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Governor’s Award for Excellence in Public Service, writes: Yale University this fall has 12 undergraduate veterans, Harvard University six, Princeton University five and Williams College five.

But they think technology can make them better teachers. They want more high-tech tools but prefer not to do anything too complicated with them. They want more research on whether technology improves learning but often rely on colleagues when figuring out what to use.
