Expo Hall: Interactive Experiences Stage
Mobile devices are ubiquitous and now an essential tool in everyone’s pocket or purse. But are these devices truly helpful, or are they more of a hindrance to how people connect, communicate, and collaborate with peers, teams, and organizations?
In this session, you will learn about several proven approaches to introducing and managing mobile devices as a significant part of today’s modern blended learning environment. You’ll explore how best to use PDFs and EPUBs as support for learning on the go; the best approaches to surveying and using interactive whiteboards to promote greater collaborative learning; and how you can use both video and game mechanics to help spur increased mobile usage.
In this session, you will learn:

- How to use digital documents (PDFs, EPUBs) to replace traditional support materials
