Learning to Learn Like Kids Today Do - Anywhere, Anytime

This informative and highly engaging webinar discussed mobile technology and how it impacts the way we, and our students, interact with and learn from the world around us. Think of a "typical" 8 year old...now a "typical" 13 year old…and finally, a "typical" 17 year old. What do you notice about how they learn? What role do mobile technologies play in this learning? What do you notice about what they learn? How does access to technology influence this? How are these different from how and what you learned at those ages? Let's explore these questions and more as we did deeply in to how we learn and what we can do to better understand and connect with how many kids today learn.

The Benefits of Mobile Technologies for K-12: Transformative and Inevitable!

During this webinar, we explored Norris and Soloway's 2010 prediction: by 2015, each and every student in America’s K-12 classrooms will be using his or her own mobile computing device 24/7 for curricular purposes, specifically how those miraculously-thin and light, aluminum-encased slabs of glass:

  • Afford significant benefits for teaching and learning
  • Enable learners to directly and immediately access information, events, organizations, places, individuals, data, tools, etc.
  • Allow learners to take control of their own learning – thereby enabling all teachers, not just artisan teachers, to enact a learn-by-doing, inquiry-directed pedagogy in their classrooms.
  • Extend the classroom to enable all-the-time, everywhere learning, which, in turn, supports the linking of the abstract ideas explored inside the classroom to the concrete, real world of people, places, and things outside the classroom.
  • Create the next wave of educational practices and unleash dramatic increases in student performance.
