Mobile Devices in the Classroom
“Our task is to educate their (our students) whole being so they can face the future. We may not see the future, but they will and our job is to help them make something of it.”
― Ken Robinson, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
Mobile technologies such as the iPad are being adopted at a rapid pace because they hold great promise for a variety of classroom uses. At EdTech360 we help schools make the most of their investment in mobile technology by offering comprehensive training services around the use of the iPad.
The easy to use design of mobile technologies makes it easy to assume teachers will know how to make the most of the technology without training. The “tech savvy” teacher will feel comfortable with experimenting but will this be true for all of your teachers? We can help close the gap between your early-adopters and the majority of your teachers who need a foundation of training that focuses on how this new device can support the learning environment.
Using mobile devices for collaboration and creative projects may present challenges to teachers not only because of the technical details they must learn but because these approaches may be a departure from traditional teaching style. EdTech360 has experienced educational technology experts that will partner with your school to develop training and classroom experiences that make the most of all that mobile technology can offer students.
The students are ready- are you?
We can offer general use training or training that is focused on using mobile devices to create video, pod casts, art, animation, and photography.
