It's in Their Pockets! Using Mobile Technologies to Engage, Excite and Empower Learning

Presenter: Karen McPherson, College of Albermarle In a world of students who are digital consumers, more than half of them own some type of electronic device. In this session, you will learn how to use some of their methods of electronic communication to inspire learning! From tweeting to texting, there are some low cost, “low tech” ways to engage our students. Rather than becoming an “add on” to the classroom experience, different forms of electronic communication can provide an alternative method of presenting work already being studied. When students incorporate technology for classroom use, they not only learn the content in a creative way, they learn 21st century communications skills at the same time. This session will present you to the mobile learning environment our students walk around with every day. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices.
