Mobile Technology and the Myth of the App
Concurrent Session 7
Smartphones and tablets are rapidly replacing laptops as the primary device used for online education. As the number of devices used in our classrooms grow it increases the need for adaptability digital education.
As more and more students are using mobile technology it's important that faculty are not unintentionally creating barriers.
The most important tool used in education is the tool that you already have. At University of Colorado Denver’s campus over 50% of student online activity is done with a mobile device. As campus see more users using mobile devices it is important that we understand how mobile technology impacts the classroom.
The objective of this session is to help you identify some of unintended issues and barriers created when not considering mobile technology. Instead of fighting mobile technology, I want to provide you with a toolkit that allows today’s educators to easily reach all of their students, no matter what device they are using.
