504 Five Steps to Making Your Virtual Classroom Mobile and Social
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Thursday, October 1
Questions about mobile and social learning can often take the conversation in the wrong direction, ones about issues of screen real estate, for example, rather than the more important questions about learner experience or if mobile is even the appropriate approach. Mobile, coupled with social media, provides a rich resource for informal learning outside of the classroom, as well as supplemental learning within the classroom.
In this session, you will see how to better ensure learning occurs during your events and continues afterward. You will gain a better understanding of how to incorporate social media tools and networks into a virtual learning experience to accomplish formal and informal learning. And finally, you will be able to identify why, when, and how participants will be using the mobile virtual classroom.
In this session, you will learn:
- To identify why, when, and how participants will be utilizing the mobile virtual classroom
- How to apply design strategies that maximize the live, mobile environment
- How to incorporate social media tools and networks into a virtual learning experience to accomplish formal and informal learning
- How to integrate social media into virtual classroom design during live sessions and in between live sessions
