Three Innovative Approaches to Mobile Learning

    Ready to throw out the heavy textbooks and jump into the world of mobile learning? Yes, but how do you do it? Are you on the mobile learning train but feel the content and teachers aren't quite there yet? This panel will explore three different ways mobile learning is being incorporated today in the elementary school environment. Katherine Burdick from Learning A-Z argues that it is better to take the safe approach and blend traditional book learning, online, and mobile apps. Tom Wolf from eSpark Learning takes a bit bolder step and states that all after school programs should adopt mobile technology only. Finally, Matt Federoff from Vail School District has had teachers throw the textbook out the window as Vail has gone totally wireless making everyone operate off of laptops and iPads to the point that even the school buses are wireless. Angela Maeirs, author of Classroom Habitudes, serves as referee.
