A good, four-part series co-produced by MindShift and Spotlight on Digital Media & Learning on how mobile devices are being used for learning, from practical teaching tactics to shifting school policies and cultural changes.
Good article on the big interest in mobile learning in company environments but very low percentage of on actual implementations.
The purpose of this meeting is the get feedback on the research plan from students and get some initial indication of who would like to be involved in helping with the research.
The research will focus on the intersection of mobile learning, social networks and e-portfolios to help students make the transition from school to work environments and from surface to deep learning.
When: Wednesday, Dec. 5th, 2:30 to 3:30

The format will be interactive; there will be five relatively short presentations (20 minutes each including questions). The rest of the morning will focus on discussion and sharing of trends, research, and best practices. One of the main purposes is to discuss the connections between topics to develop an integrated, effective vision for the modern learner and to map out a research strategy.
