This presentation will explore two instructors’ experiences while teaching a new graduate-level mobile technologies course at a Midwest university. This blended course was designed to inform educators and professionals about mobile technologies for teaching and learning. The instructors will share various mobile technologies and discuss some of the benefits and limitations of these tools. Participants will be encouraged to share and contribute their own experiences and best practices with mobile technologies in the university classroom.
Through the use of synchronous tools including whiteboard, chat, and polling, participants will be encouraged to share and contribute their own experiences and best practices with mobile technologies in the online and/or face-to-face classroom. As one example, participants will be asked to brainstorm ideas for using various mobile applications and technologies and share with the rest of the group. The collection of resources shared during the session will then be available as a take-away resource for all participants.
