Historically, traditional teaching methods and rote memorization techniques have often led to shallow student learning in many classrooms; yet, this contributing author of Tablets in K-12 Education will take participants on a journey to explore 8 types of technology-infused learning activities that can help change that. In fact, during this timely session, we'll see how these activities provide a dynamic, student-friendly platform for facilitating deep understanding and knowledge construction across curriculum areas. After exploring the dynamic integration of cross-platform student applications like infographics, video games, simulations, and multimedia tools, participants will be ready to take students' learning with mobile devices to a whole new level.
Understanding of how 8 learning activities in 3 instructional design categories can lead to deeper understanding and knowledge construction. Exploration and evaluation of cross-platform apps that support learning, including virtual field trips, simulations, concept mapping, info graphics, and more. A list of over 40 apps that can support these learning activities. Strategies for addressing traditional standards in more innovative and effective ways. Empowerment, knowing that they are capable of doing incredible learning through tech activities with their students even if they have little previous tech background with those tools.
