Subject: NERCOMP - Mobile Technologies in the Classroom - January 13
 
Dear Friends, 
Registration is now open for NERCOMP's upcoming workshop: 
" Not a Disruption, but a Disruptive Device - Mobile Technologies in the
Classroom "

DATE: 
January 13, 2012

TIME: 
9:00- 3:00 (Coffee and Registration start at 8:00)

PRICE: 
NERCOMP Members: $130, Non-Members: $260

LOCATION: 
Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center
Southbridge, MA.

DESCRIPTION: 
"Disrupting what actually happens in the classroom by instituting
student-centric technologies is vital to customize learning for each
individual student and to improve motivation for all." -Christensen,
Clayton, Curtis W. Johnson and Michael B. Horn. Disrupting Class: How
Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns. New York: McGraw
Hill, 2008.
From brand-new apps to easy browser access in SMART phones, tablets and
more, mobile devices bring a new teaching tool into the classroom, enabling
even large-lecture classes to shift pedagogical strategies. Although there
is much work being done on the use of mLearning outside the classroom, this
session will explore specific classroom uses of mobile technologies,
including case presentations that identify pedagogical challenges,
strategies implemented with mobile technology, resulting data (where
applicable) and recommendations for future use. Current research into the
value and potential for mLearning to increase student understanding,
interaction with instructors and other learning objectives within the
classroom will also be explored.
