Session 1: 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Learning and Schooling in the Age of Mobilism

Keynote Presenters: Elliot Soloway, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, University of Michigan with Cathie Norris, Regents Professor, College of Education, University of North Texas

Moderator: Therese Mageau, Editorial Director, 1105 Media Education Group

Speeding past Steve Jobs’ Post-PC Era into the Age of Mobilism, we can foresee how, by 2015, each and every student in America’s K-12 classrooms will be using their own mobile computing device with those devices engendering the most disruptive transformation in education in 150 years. Classrooms will move from today’s “I Teach” teacher-centric and, by and large, ineffective and boring pedagogy to a “We Learn” pedagogy where the teacher learns along with the students, mastering content and practicing the key 21st century skills. Flipping the classroom is only the beginning; mobile technologies extend the classroom to support all-the-time, everywhere learning, to support the linking of the abstract ideas explored inside the classroom to the real world of people, places, things outside the classroom. And, most importantly make no mistake: THIS CHANGE IS INEVITABLE.

Session 2: 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Effective Mobile Programs and Policies: Designing a Strategy

Featured presenter: Julie Evans, Chief Executive Officer, Project Tomorrow

Moderator: Therese Mageau, Editorial Director, 1105 Media Education Group

A key component of an effective mobile learning strategy is the development of a shared vision for success. To that goal, the Speak Up national data findings provide a valuable context for understanding the authentic views of students, parents and educators on mobile learning – their aspirations as well as concerns.

Session 3: 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm

Administrative Mobile Tools

Featured presenter: Susan Brooks-Young, Consultant/Author, Opportunity Group

Moderator: Therese Mageau, Editorial Director, 1105 Media Education Group

As a school administrator, you are constantly on the move—gathering data, collaborating on projects, keeping up with professional reading, and more. You have (or are thinking about purchasing) an iPad or an Android tablet because you like its promise of mobility. Now you’re ready to identify the ways the tablet will simplify your professional life and tackle some of these daily tasks using a mobile device. This session helps you identify and evaluate free and low-cost apps and administrative tools you can use to harness the power of your mobile device.

Session 4: 4:30 pm – 5:15 pm

Using iPads as Dynamic Teaching Tools

Featured presenter: Jenna Linskens, Assistant Professor, Marian University

Moderator: Therese Mageau, Editorial Director, 1105 Media Education Group

This session will provide participants with an opportunity to explore effective uses, applications and creative ways to use the iPad in the academic setting to support student learning and assessment through creation, not just consumption. Professional applications for effective lesson presentation, organization, and communication will also be shared. The presenter will share a variety of applications (both free and of minimal cost) on the iPad, so have your device ready. Information on iPad management within the school setting will also be shared.
