Experiential Mobile Learning: Authentic Learning Experiences Via Students' Mobile Devices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Computers, wi-fi, and smart phones allow young people 24/7 access to technology and to one another. In this session, participants will perform activities that use the technology devices young people use. These activities focus on and build diversity and cultural sensitivity, problem-solving, self-reflection and self-exploration, and communication and self-expression. During this interactive BYOD workshop, participants will explore the research on young people's use of mobile devices and develop and experience strategies for integrating mobile-driven community building activities into the classroom environment. This workshop demonstrates how a variety of the students' mobile devices can be used and incorporated into the classroom setting. The activities are applications for middle school through college level classes. Related website: http://community-building.weebly.com/
