Then join Jane Wilde and Lucie deLaBruere for a semester of “making” mobile media at Graduate School of Marlboro College.
An introductory course targeted at educators who want to make mobile media (games, simulation, interactive ebooks, apps, online learning modules, iTunes U courses) to support teaching and learning. Relevant readings on the current state of mobile learning in education will be assigned and discussed as students create their own mobile media. We will experience development options that use combination of both computers and mobile devices (tablets, phones, etc). You will need a computer for this course (Mac or Windows) and access to a mobile device to share and test the mobile media you create. Participants will choose one interactive media development platform for Android or Apple devices and become familiar with that platforms development cycle (from conception to publishing a prototype). Examples of a final project are: An iTunes U course, a working app prototype, an interactive multimedia ebook, a STEM (Science Technology Engineering, Mathematics) unit where your students create mobile media, , or an mobile friendly open education course., A basic ability to use mobile devices, computers and the Net is the only prerequisite. No experience in app development or computer science needed.
