Discussions will focus on sharing ideas, resources, and best practices for using mobile technologies in the classroom. For the culminating project, participants will develop a sample lesson utilizing the apps from the course or additional mobile apps they discovered and share the lesson with the class. In addition, this course is intended to be completed using ONLY a mobile tablet device, either iOS or Android.
