Presented by Susan Wells, current President of ISTE SIG Mobile Learning
Explore mobile environments. Immerse students in nature, engineering, and experiential learning. This “new Project-Based Learning” merges mobile learning, maker ed, STEM, and hands-on learning into Common Core-based curriculum for students. In our community’s next webinar, Susan Wells, educator and Current President of ISTE SIG Mobile Learning, will present how synthesizing the tools of Mobile Ed and Maker Ed brings fun and high engagement to the classroom. Learn how bringing these two educational movements together with the CCSS creates education that make more sense, with content that is connected and integrated so students are fully engaged in the curriculum. The session will begin with a brief overview of Project-based Learning, Mobile Learning, and Maker Education. Next, Susan will tell us about Camp EdTech Green, an example of the merging of mobile ed and maker ed that is happening right now in Durham, NC. See how you can combine found and recycled items with tools like iMovie, LiveBinder, Twitter, i-Nigma, Aurasma, Makey-Makey Arduino Boards, and Rasberry-Pi for a more powerful curriculum. Join Susan on January 9th to gain a firm grasp of the innovative learning environment of mobile and maker education. Attendees will come away equipped to replicate a similar project-based learning model in their own school or district.
