Choosing Apps for Optimal Learning
Presentation Site
Increased use of touch screen devices (e.g., iPads) in educational technology has resulted in hundreds of available apps for the classroom. However, apps tagged as 'educational' in the marketplace are not created equally; some apps fail to make use of interactions or feedback conducive to learning. This seminar will provide attendees with methods for evaluating educational apps to support constructive learning in the classroom, focusing on finding interactions that promote deep cognitive processes. Feel free to bring your own device(s) and explore app demos along with us.

Managing and Supporting iPads in the Classroom with iOS 7

Transforming Today’s Learning Environment through BYOD and Mobile Video Applications
Video-based learning increases retention by 400% according to the Visual Teaching Alliance.

According to Gartner, mobile video software client users grew 340% between 2010 and 2012. It is expected that mobile video users will grow from 429 million to 2.4B in 2016. How are we as educators leveraging this phenomenon?

As the use of live interactive video increases in education - with students and teachers/administrators all connecting - we are increasingly seeing students and teachers issuing devices or promoting use of student own technology devices. In fact, some say that the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement is revolutionizing how educators teach and students learn. How are we, as educators, capitalizing on student or faculty owned mobile devices to radically change the learning environment?

In this interactive session, the presenters will provide an overview of desktop and mobile video applications and how they are being used in the collaborative classroom:
• Students become engaged in a “hate to miss” learning environment where they use various devices and software to collaborate, work on projects, participate in problem-based learning whether physically on campus, at a remote site or while traveling.
• Faculty meet face-to-face remotely with one or many pulling in subject matter experts from content providers or businesses. Learn how we can leverage desktop or mobile devices while incorporating other tools in their arsenals such as interactive whiteboards.
• Learn about different education institutions as they share best practices in flexible distance learning and collaboration.
