Using Mobile Devices to Transform Teaching and Learning
Organization: Academic Impressions
Venue: Hyatt Harborside
|Event Date/Time: Jan 30, 2013||End Date/Time: Feb 01, 2013|
Students are coming to campuses with widely varying degrees of technological knowledge and armed with many different mobile devices. How does your institution ensure it is meeting quality standards, while meeting faculty needs for effective instruction with mobile technology? Are you able to determine if students are actually learning more using mobile devices? Who is maintaining the mobile infrastructure and what’s the cost to your institution?
Join us in Boston as experts in mobile learning from Abilene Christian University, Boise State University, and Tennessee State University and Board of Regents share advice around these topics and more. Through a combination of lecture and working sessions, you’ll leave this event with a new understanding of how mobile technology can transform teaching and learning, strengthen classroom instruction, and move your institution toward an “anytime and anywhere” approach to education
A LEARN, WORK, AND SHARE EVENT
As they present the conference content, our instructors will model good practices in teaching with mobile technology, showing you how it is applicable in real time. Through a mix of lecture and small group activities you will be able to ask questions and share information with fellow attendees that will help you discover how best to integrate effective instruction on any mobile platform.
WHAT TO BRING
You are required to bring your own mobile device(s), as you will be actively engaged in hands-on learning and activities throughout the conference. Conference proceedings will be made available to you in the cloud.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This conference is intended for faculty, faculty developers, instructional designers, instructional technologists, multimedia specialists, and content developers who want to learn how to use mobile devices as instructional tools to improve their teaching. We encourage you to send teams that include representatives from a variety of departments that would benefit from the instructional guidelines presented.
