Let's get this party started with 5 great ways to document student mobile learning....I am intrigued by the photo blogging! Can't wait to add to this list of resources after the webinar.
Hello from Port Allen, Louisiana! My name is Tammy Seneca and I will be a co-host for tomorrow night's webinar on Using Mobile Devices to Collect Data in the Classroom. I am the Supervisor of Information Systems and Educational Technology for West Baton Rouge Parish (www.wbrschools.net). Mobile devices are the wave of the future and education is beginning to see and utilize the great potential that these devices provide. I will share some sample activities tomorrow night! I look forward to seeing all of you online!
The beautiful Hudson Valley area of New York is where I will be broadcasting as a co-host for Tuesday’s webinar on Using Mobile Devices to Collect Data. I am Stacey Lazarus and I run the computer department at a 900 student high school and do Professional Development for several school districts and private companies. Join us Tuesday to see how collecting data can be easy. We will use several different web based sites and apps to do this! Looking forward to having a great time!
Well in all honesty I have never used any mobile or batter operated device to collect data from my kids. -At least not interactively. I do however use pearson success net to access Envisions online Math lessons and after we go through the lesson there is always a quiz. The quiz has multiple choice answers and I have my students vote - 1, 2, 3, or 4 with their fingers in the air, simultaneously so I can see who got the lesson and who did not. It would be neat if I could have them complete the lesson quiz on a mobile device that would allow me to keep their scores and use it for reteaching, quiz grade, etc. There were so many good apps and websites shown today that I don't have them straight in my head yet to know which one to use. I will however, continue to build upon this knowledge to find at least 1 of these tools to implement next year.
Here are the links from my part of the presentation tonight. Thanks so much for a great webinar!
Feel free to use any of these activities... and to make it your own!

Here is a link to the three slide shows that I used to present the different web based and mobile apps.
Please answer the poll below. Using your mobile device, text to the number 37607 your "answer to what you want to spend time discussing in depth.Example: if it is Padlet, text 368707 to 37607.
I have the scavenger hunt app now and am anxious to see what I can do with it for PE. The QR code app is great for my bones and muscles, heart, aerobic capacity, nutrition, etc. health lessons. We use the digital camera a lot to give feedback on skills. The visual feedback is so much more helpful than just words.
These webinars open up so many new possibilities that I haven't thought of before. Thanks!
With QR codes.... did you know that if you use the URL shortener goo.gl it comes with a neat feature! Once you get your shortened url, if you add .qr to the end, you now have a QR code that you can track!
So.... engage.intel.com/message/112649#112649 becomes goo.gl/kUjTA .... becomes goo.gl/kUjTA.qr, giving you...
This is the list of ideas shared in the Today's Meet during the webinar ....How do you collect student data? Do you have any ideas to add?
i use a creative idea like a game by Bluetooth

iPad, Qwizdom, hand voting, writing by Cindy Austria
Use Google docs to collect data http:www.docs.google.com by Linda Hunter

ipad, ipod, Web 2.0, Activexpressions by Tammy
Use desktops and ipads by Stacey
I was unable to attend the webinar in person. I'd add Google Forms to this list. Students enter their science experimental data and it shows up on a spreadsheet. Our math teachers have then used the spreadsheet data to teach graphing. Students are always amazed as they use their own data to graph in the math classroom. "How did you get our data?" is the most common question asked. Students seem surprised to learn that teachers "share."
Great list and suggestions for collecting data.
There are so many wonderful collaborative tools out there... it's hard to know which one to select for the purpose of collecting student data. I like to look for new experiences and the "Cool Tools for Schools" web site has a wonderful list of collaborative tools. cooltoolsforschools - Collaborative Tools
If you are ready to try something new... take a look at the web site list. In some cases it might be fun to let the student groups select their own tool.
The tools that I use for collecting data depends on the presentation, type of data to be collected and the reason for collecting it. I use voicethreads to front load presentations and obtain prior knowledge. I use tools like socrative to create an interactive learning environment and to encourage students to participate in the class discussion. I use padlet to post essential questions and encourage higher order thinking responses. Infographics and multimedia tools (animate, voki, animoto, slideshare) etc. are among tools that students can select from to demonstrate mastery learning.
Webinar has become in the last biennium 2009-2010 of the most important events that we are fighting them, in lectures and exercises
Attendance will be in different places may be in another state away from you may be at the time does not suit you or seeds may be high financial cost

Let's start with the definition of a smart phone. Smartphones is distinct from conventional phones feature a more advanced features. Older smartphones combine features personal digital assistant (PDA) and the camera. You can make outgoing calls and receive incoming calls, send and receive messages and take pictures with this kind of smart phones. But with the passage of time, trying to developers of smart phones constantly adapting to meet the needs of users and the integration of the latest technologies in these smart phones so that they can perform additional tasks. Besides smart phones, tablet gaining popularity as well. Most of these devices benefit from similar operating systems for smartphones systems. The only difference is that this tablet has more features, and very much like a laptop, but a smaller size.
But what makes these smart phones? The main reason for launching this label is that it allows users to do a lot of things. Smart phones are smart because of the operating system (OS).
What operating systems? Is a series of computer management programs and provide specific services. These systems represent the mind of the computer, and the most important part of the computer or any other device such as smart phones. The user can not run any application without the presence of an operating system. The operating system is running computers and smartphones
