Mobile Devices in Adult Education


Do you want to explore ways of using a mobile device for instruction in the adult education classroom? This workshop will introduce you to using your device to text; discuss and discover ways to implement text activities in the classroom; take pictures with your device; and apply those images to classroom activities. You will also learn how to use mobile devices as an audio tool to enhance speaking and pronunciation and understand the power of an instant response system using your mobile device in the classroom. Participants will learn about a variety of websites and apps that can be used with students for assessment and collaboration. This is a hands-on workshop and you are required to bring your mobile device.

Prerequisites: Ownership of or access to a functional cell phone or tablet with texting capability. Bring the device with you to the workshop, fully charged.

All participants must have basic computer skills and know their login information for a work or personal email address.
