Mobile Learning Series: Location-Based Learning

Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm


With mobile technologies like smartphones and tablets, students can access course materials from anywhere and engage in learning activities while on the go. While this quite obviously has convenience benefits, being on-location also opens up new possibilities for learning activities and strategies. In this online workshop we will look at location-based apps like Foursquare and how they might be used in learning activities. We will also investigate how students can use photo, video, and audio capabilities on-location to learn, record, and reflect on their experiences in the real world. Advance registration is required.
