10:45-11:45 Mobile Learning:

  • Scenes from the Mobile Campus: Classroom activities are moving to smart phones and tablet computers in surprising ways — from taking attendance, enabling location-aware field trips, or even allowing students to report whether a room is too hot or cold. A presentation from Jeff Young provides a tour of innovative experiments and the issues they raise for college IT leaders.
  • Expanding the Definition of Mobile Learning:  In a world saturated by connectivity, we frequently take for granted how often we find ourselves without access to the internet.  We will hear from a Matthew Cooper, a pioneer in mobile learning, who is working on a project which expands the definition of mobile learning and will bridge the gap between a robust online course taken at home on a PC and a stream-lined mobile course.
