Using Mobile Devices to Enhance the Curriculum
Connecticut College's Digitally Enhanced Learning Initiative (DELI) explores how mobile devices such as iPads, iPods, and other student-centered technologies (pocket video cameras and underwater cameras) can be used to enhance students' academic experiences. A merged computing and library environment provides the resources and support for faculty who want to furnish devices to a class to achieve specific content-related learning goals and increase digital literacy. Presenters will describe the application process, logistics, assessment, and future strategies, as well as offer attendees hand-on experience with course kits from a number of disciplines.
OUTCOMES: Learn about a successful model for a mobile initiative and distribution/deployment options, particularly for iOS devices * Understand potential challenges, including institutional buy-in, sustainability, assessment, and scalability
