      'Three ways to engage in mobile learning'

       If the term 'mobile learning' makes you think of expensive bespoke content created to work on handheld devices, think again. Lilian introduces you to ways of using the functionality of various mobile devices to engage your learners. Mobile devices can make learning more fun and dynamic. Together with Web 2.0 technologies, they open up a new paradigm of learning. Access to a mobile phone is recommended for participation.

      'New to Mobile Learning Course Development? Getting Started...'
       presenter : Garin Hess

      • How do I develop learning content that works on all of the different devices out there?
      • How will learners access the mobile course content? Do I have to load it locally on the smartphone or tablet or is there some easier way?
      • How do I track learner results to the Learning Management System (LMS)?
      In this session Garin will introduce you to the different options available so you can get your mobile learning strategy started right.

      This is a tutorial which shows you how you can

      Everyone is so excited about tethering the iPad 2 to a projector, admittedly very cool, that we have missed something else at least as good if not even better! Go all the way: make the iPad 1 or 2 into a complete interactive whiteboard solution!
      If you already own an iPad, computer, and projector, this can be done for less than the cost of Apple's new Digital AV Adapter for the iPad 2. Ok, full disclosure: this solution only costs 2 cents less than the adapter. But for tethering with the Digital AV Adapter, you also have to purchase an HDMI to VGA cable too!

      Improving Productivity and Collaboration through Enterprise Mobility

      This is a free webinar.
      Increased workforce mobility and the popularisation of mobile technologies are raising awareness of the benefits mobility can deliver across many aspects of businesses, including customer service, decision making, workforce productivity and business continuity. Most of these benefits, however, are not fully realised today because many firms lack centralised visibility and efficient security and management mechanisms for mobility across their IT environment. As the boundaries between in and out of office continue to disappear, CIOs and business managers face increased pressure to embrace popular and innovative consumer technologies to foster greater collaboration and productivity across their workforce

      This IDC session will
      • Discuss the current trends in mobile working today
      • Highlight the key challenges European businesses face in deploying enterprise mobility to their workforces
      • Look at how consumerisation is changing the IT landscape for most European businesses today and what they should be doing internally to ensure they deliver a secure infrastructure for their employees.

      Re-claiming Student Success:
      Achieving School Turnaround with Effective Master Scheduling and Blended Learning

      Integrating technology into the classroom promises a cost-effective means for improving student performance in the face of uncertainties surrounding budgets and staffing.

      In particular, blended learning — which combines traditional education models with digital curricula — has been hailed for its ability to help schools meet the challenges of rising assessment standards, class size limits, and reduced funding. However, reports that promote the benefits of blended learning also caution that merely adding technology to a classroom is not enough. A meaningful implementation can necessitate altering the traditional school day.

      That's why we're bringing you this one-hour webinar that outlines the turnaround efforts at Jo Nelson Middle School.

      Secrets of High-Quality Interactive Learning Content

      Interactive lesson planning is much like what we were taught when we first learned how to write lesson plans. The only difference is that now we have the power of interactivity to incorporate into our lesson design. It opens the realm of possibilities to tap into every student’s unique learning style, otherwise known as differentiation. Planning is not arbitrary but skillful, with deliberate decisions being made every step of the way.
      The first part of this webinar will discuss the primary features of high-quality interactive lessons, including student-focused learning objectives that are observable and measureable, assessment that is appropriate to the objectives, and giving the learner numerous opportunities to practice the skill that we want them to be able to apply. Other features to be discussed include sequencing of content from easy-to-difficult and simple-to-complex, and designing lesson layouts that are clean and uncluttered.
      The second part of this webinar will show examples of real lessons that illustrate these principles. Mimio Master Tracy Tishion will lead the group through these lessons and share her own experiences with high- and low-quality digital content being used in schools today.
      On completion of this webinar, attendees should be able to:
      • Identify examples of student objectives that are observable and unobservable;
      • Write student-focused learning objectives that are observable and measureable;
      • Identify examples of assessment that are overt and covert;
      • Write assessment items that are overt and appropriate for the objectives;
      • Write at least three additional characteristics of quality content
