As mobile learning devices become more prevalent, we are finding ourselves in a position to really rethink pedagogy in a way that promotes deeper learning to help students develop a future ready skill set. When it comes to blending face to face modes of instructional delivery with high level content driven and creative apps, extensions and add-ons, possibilities for truly engaging young hearts and minds are endless. Whether the approach is Cart, Checkout, or Take Home in a bricks and mortar setting or a blend of virtual and face to face learning, there are a multitude of resources available to support teachers, technology leaders and administrators. My work in this area specializes in:
1. Setting the stage for 1:1/blended learning deployment: getting your tech department, teachers, school leaders, parents and students ready! (Hot Tip: Students are the easiest!)
2. Enhancing & upgrading curriculum to better integrate & reflect Deeper Learning Skills/Outcomes in relation to authentic projects/tasks.
3. Working with teachers on the nuts & bolts of device integration relative to their unique classroom needs/setting.
4. Leveraging GSuite for Education across all devices.
