The Handbook of Teaching with Technology in Management, Leadership, and Business is an outcome of the work of a long line of educators who have embraced technology to enhance teaching and learning, from early efforts in the 1990s to add graphics to PowerPoint slides, to the more recent use of social robotic telepresence systems, such as Kubi, in the classroom. Online and mobile teaching and learning has increasingly become a major focus of these innovative efforts. Our inspiration came from our own professional experiences and through training and supporting others, including a hands-on presentation series that started at the Academy of Management Annual Meetings as early as 1998 (Past meetings n.d.) titled “Teaching with technology”. The first few sessions were pioneered by Randy Dunham (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Joe Garcia (Organizer, Western Washington University), Robert Marx (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), Guido Slangen (Renselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hartford), Randy Sleeth (Virginia Commonwealth University), and Joan Weiner (Drexel University). The first session was aptly titled “Technology and teaching: implications for the future of the management classroom.” The “Teaching with technology” title emerged in 2003. This became an annual event that presents the latest in classroom technology progress, featuring the ways in which educational technology has improved, enhanced, and furthered students’ learning experience. These sessions have always offered a hands-on approach to discovering technology in the classroom, with demonstrations, group discussions, and interaction.
