Description

As mobile devices become more commonplace, computing resources have become more powerful and more accessible. Almost all students come to classes with the knowledge of how to use social media tools for personal networking. Fewer students have harnessed that power of social media and mobile computing to enhance their educational experiences. This session will highlight mobile apps that faculty are using to increase active and engaged learning. Good practices in teaching and learning drive the faculty and student adoption of apps. These practices will be highlighted along with apps from both Apple and Android operating systems. Feedback from faculty and students will be shared with the participants along with an overview of best practices for empowering students to take an active role as partners in learning.
