Innovative Teaching with Mobile Devices

About This Course

In today’s world, it isn’t enough to ask students if they know something.

They need to prove they can find it, connect with it, and ultimately use it to create something new. Technology has revolutionized the classroom by helping students see beyond the walls of their classroom.

This workshop takes teachers out of the classroom and into an immersive experience that promotes cross-disciplinary skills to accomplish a project relevant to their subject area. It also helps them gain new, innovative ways to incorporate mobile devices into instruction.

Teachers are divided by their content areas – science, English, math, social studies, and fine arts – and are then assigned a facilitator to lead their experience. The activities are different for each subject and culminate in a large group, where every participant can share their finished projects; participants will then discuss how the experience supports STEAM education.
