Intel® Education Mobile Learning Series: The Benefits of Mobile Technologies for K-12
The Intel® Education Mobile Learning Series welcomes special guests Dr. Cathleen Norris and Dr. Elliot Soloway to present "The Benefits of Mobile Technologies for K-12: Transformative and Inevitable!" Enabling New Pedagogical Practices and Dramatic Increases in Student Performance. Norris and Soloway stand by their 2010 prediction: by 2015, each and every student in America’s K-12 classrooms will be using his or her own mobile computing device 24/7 for curricular purposes. For good reasons! Those miraculously-thin and light, aluminum-encased slabs of glass afford significant benefits for teaching and learning. For example, Internet-connected, mobile devices enable learners to directly and immediately access information, events, organizations, places, individuals, data, tools, etc. Such unprecedented access enables learners to take control of their own learning – thereby enabling all teachers, not just artisan teachers, to enact a learn-by-doing, inquiry-directed pedagogy in their classrooms. Flipping the classroom is only the beginning; mobile technologies extend the classroom to enable all-the-time, everywhere learning, which, in turn, supports the linking of the abstract ideas explored inside the classroom to the concrete, real world of people, places, and things outside the classroom. The benefits of mobile devices can – and will – enable the next wave of educational practices and unleash dramatic increases in student performance. And, most importantly make no mistake: THIS CHANGE IS INEVITABLE.

Intel® Education Mobile Learning Series: Learning to Learn Like Kids Today Do - Anywhere, Anytime
Think of a "typical" 8 year old...now a "typical" 13 year old…and finally, a "typical" 17 year old. What do you notice about how they learn? What role do mobile technologies play in this learning? What do you notice about what they learn? How does access to technology influence this? How are these different from how and what you learned at those ages? Becky Fisher helps us explore these questions and more as we did deeply in to how we learn and what we can do to better understand and connect with how many kids today learn.
