Preconference Workshops 6 May 2010


9:00 - 12:00 What Can I Do Now? (web 2.0 pedagogy)

In this session, learn how teachers can “rejig” their lessons to take advantage of social media and free tools available on the Internet. Emphasizing pedagogy over tools, we’ll look at research based approaches to using flickr, wikis, Google Maps, and mashups of a great many more tools. Bring along your favorite lesson plan and we’ll try to give it a Web 2.0 face-lift in session.



1:30 - 4:30 Ya Mean It's A Phone TOO!?! (mobile learning)

with Rob C. Fisher

How can the phones most kids have in their pockets make all spaces learning spaces and potentially shift learning times to any time? Think about it, the cell phone in your pocket right now is 20 times more powerful than the computer system that put the first man on the moon. How can we take advantage of that to engage all students as active learners? Using the four basic features of today's common mobile phones (voice, text, pictures, and video) participants will explore how to accomplish meaningful learning goals in an educational context. As we work through the session you will create all sorts of multimedia and instantly post it to the web. We’ll explore how mobile technology can be leveraged to support strong pedagogical goals.


Please be considerate of others and keep your cell phone ON!

(Do we really need to tell you to bring your own cell phone?)
