Want to use your iPads in more powerful ways?

Then why not enroll in a Fall semester graduate course offered by Marlboro College Graduate school. Completely online!  

Join fellow educators to consider the Essential Question: "How can we leverage mobile tools to transform learning?"

-Contribute to collaborative curation of resources and grow a PLN (personal learning network) that can help us better understand learning with mobile devices.

-Build skills using mobile tools by completing the weekly challenge

– Reflect on our learning

-Complete a Final Project that uses mobile tools to transform learning in YOUR learning environment.

Course Description:

Tablets, smartphones, readers and other mobile devices are rapidly becoming part of the learning landscape. This course will explore and evaluate features and resources to leverage when integrating mobile devices in instructional design and curriculum. Course topics will include apps, multimedia, and multimodal resources such as ibooks, ebooks, iTunes U and Open University. There will be a heavy focus on moving beyond consumption into creation and collaboration with mobile devices, using text, audio, images, and video. Personalized learning, accessibility, and other pedagogical considerations will be explored as we pursue a creative inquiry into what type of transformation is possible with mobile devices.More information is available on the Class Syllabus.
