304 Applying Academic Strategies and Technology in Mobile Learning

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, June 10



Building learning programs can be a complex endeavor, especially in a multi-device environment. Simply porting eLearning and traditional face-to-face experiences to mobile often isn’t a viable solution. There are other ways to effectively facilitate mobile learning. 

In this session you will explore many of the best practices for utilizing mobile technologies being used by academic institutions. You will learn about the sea of change affecting academia regarding learning technologies and how those changes apply to the corporate world. You will explore examples of mobile learning in practice, including flipped, genius hour, differentiated instruction, project-based learning, and visual thinking. While these examples are presented in an academic environment, the lessons shared can be applied to adult learning as well.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create mLearning activities using low-cost iOS apps
  • How to design social learning activities into your mLearning
  • How to engage with educators in other disciplines in an effective model for mobile development
  • Visual thinking strategies in mLearning assessment

Novice designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
