The Strengths and Challenges of Mobile Learning
On Monday August 24th, myself and other educators will host an online session as part of the Ontario Educator Meetup on Mobile Learning titled, “The Strengths and Challenges of Mobile Learning”. In this discussion, we will be looking at how teachers can leverage the use of mobile devices to help students learn and the challenges they and their students face in making this happen.
The online session will take place in an online forum using conferencing software called Adobe Connect. Adobe Connect allows for simultaneous conversations in multiple formats including text chat and voice chat. Obviously, the more people that participate, the richer the discussion will be. Therefore, set a calendar reminder and come by the meeting room with a headset and microphone. If you are interested in mlearning and in it’s potentials in improving student achievement, then this is conversation you don’t want to miss.

Why: While new ideas and teaching strategies in improving student learning are constantly being developed and discussed, technology is often left off of the table (or mentioned only in superficial ways) in general discussions and in traditional Professional Development forums. It’s time educators come together to discuss at how new technologies can be used to improve student learning and how to overcome the inevitable challenges associated with technology integration.
