DESCRIPTION

The ELIs research on mobile learning brings together a collection of best practices, case studies, and research on mobile technologies potential to engage students and enhance learning. Using your own local mobile learning initiatives or pilots, well review and apply strategies and methodologies to help measure the impact of mobile tools on teaching and learning. As we review these approaches and measurement frameworks, participants will consider their challenges/opportunities in these areas and what research might be useful to advance their mobility work. This talk is part of the BNN Future of the Academy Speaker Series co-sponsored by NERCOMP, the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), and the Boston Library Consortium (BLC).
