Recent school surveys and initial exposure to mobile devices in the classrooms has elicited a positive response from students, both in the desire to use these devices, as well as a heightened engagement while using them.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
This project may be utilized by all my core team members. The process is consistent. Only the content/skills addressed would need to be modified.
The goal is to implement more student-generated, published, and shared evidence of learning in a collaborative atmosphere.
Materials: Mobile Labs
Other Items: 15 IPod Touches, $200.00 each, total of $3000.00
