Do you have a technology tip to offer as mobile learning grows among teachers and students?
Hi Lynne, this post brought a smile to my face. I recently retired from being an Instructional Technology Specialist. Throughout the 12 years in this position I shared many resources. At the top of the list is, was, will be Thinkfinity. The Thinkfinity Community offers much to educators. It isn't just a portal to fabulous Thinkfinity Resources from Content Partners, but is also a learning community.
As Mobile Learning has been on the rise over the past 3 years, I played a role in securing 30 iPads for classroom use. It was a true learning experience working with teachers and students on the many ways iPads could be used in the classroom.
Web 2.0 tools also gained popularity during this time. Sites like Edmodo,Padlet (Wallwisher), and VoiceThread offer new opportunities to enhance lessons and provide educators with ways to manage and share information and ideas.
These are just a few resources. The recent #MobileEdChat being held on Twitter has offered many good tips for mobile learning. The third part series ends with the 8PM session on Authentic Tasks, Tuesday, November 12, 2013.
