If you have ever taught IB, or if you innovate to the point that textbooks lose their significance, then this article is for you. BTW, LiveBinders is a great choice for collecting resources into easily used units

Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you know that mobile learning (or mlearning) is on the rise.  New technology is making mobile learning a realty, and the decrease in mlearning device prices is helping with overall adoption.

Administrative support is the most important factor of a school's success with any program. School heads, leaders, department heads, business officers, and other decision makers will want to attend this session, discussing the do's and don'ts of implementing mobile devices. Spanning across all aspects involved, topics discussed will include technical requirements and best practices, professional development, BYOD vs school-owned, public relations, parental involvement, student preparedness, and much more.

Wrong Answers: make Prezis, start blogs, create Wordles, publish Animotos, design flipcharts, produce videos, post to Edmodo, use whiteboard, develop apps

 

Right Answers: raise awareness, start conversations, find answers (to THEIR questions), join partners, change minds, make a difference, take action, drive change

 

Technology is a TOOL, NOT an outcome

On incorporating technology in the classroom

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:55 AM

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.
