Technological tools allow professors and students to streamline the learning process. However, technology is changing at a rapid pace making learning new skills and keeping up with digital natives a formidable task. This presentation showcases the most effective ways to become a 21st century research professor using mobile resources, cutting-edge apps, ubiquitous social media resources, and effective learning strategies.
