Wednesday, August 10 | 1:00AM–1:00AM
Session Type: Professional Development
Mobile learning has become a noteworthy topic in higher education. Mobile devices are pervasive on campuses and have the power to connect students to learning experiences that were previously impossible. Despite the power of mobile devices, instructors still struggle to provide meaningful learning experiences that integrate mobile technology. Integrating mobile requires thought and careful planning. Mobile learning success is reliant on several, often overlooked, key foundational components. Campuses and classrooms need to be adequately prepared for mobile learning. Further, instructors have a plethora of variables to consider. Learning to evaluate the learning context and what might be needed for a successful learning experience is critical when using mobile technology in the classroom. This course will explore the many facets of mobile learning that lead to successful mobile experiences for students, instructors, and technical staff.
