In this workshop, we look at proven strategies for using mobile devices in ways that purposefully impact student learning. First, we begin by making the most of tablets, iPods, smart phones and Chromebooks, learning how to make instructional improvements that allow for thoughtful and purposeful use of these tools in the classroom. Next, we examine ways to leverage the power of YouTube channels, calendar, sites and more to support high-level classroom instruction. From Google Docs for collaboration to Google Sites for publishing, we will explore all of the amazing ways to use Google. At the end of this workshop, participants leave with strategies and ideas for effectively using mobile devices to increase critical thinking skills and improve information literacy. Participants also develop a set of strategies for creating an innovative and collaborative classroom.
