At SAS, we believe in the power of mobile learning. From supplemental tools for classroom instruction to comprehensive, interactive lessons, mobile apps are transforming education allowing for learning to occur anytime, anywhere. Mobile learning not only motivates and meets the needs of 21st century students, but also aligns with the skills and competencies demanded by today’s workplace. Therefore, we at SAS, along with our consortium of teachers, students, and domain experts, are creating innovative, practical mobile apps to help facilitate progression toward the mobile-enhanced, ubiquitous classroom—at no cost and ad-free! Among these apps is SAS® Read Aloud: a storytime experience for early readers, SAS® Math Stretch: drill and practice for elementary math, SAS® Data Notebook: a digital 3-ring binder for students of all ages, and SAS Flashcards®: a study tool featuring user created content.

However, adopting and integrating mobile learning into current pedagogy has generated new and unique challenges yet to be fully resolved. With so many apps available in the App Store educators are often left wondering how to best identify quality applications and how can these be integrated into their current classroom?

To help participants of this session answer these questions, we will provide:

• A discussion of SAS’ philosophy for developing quality research-based educational apps that involves integrating expertise of researcher, teachers, students, and domain experts.
• An introduction to SAS’s suite of innovative, research-based mobile apps for education available at no cost and ad-free.
• An outline of case studies and implementation strategies for supporting mobile learning as identified by our expert consortium of classroom teachers.

Co-presented with Jennifer Sabourin
