Mobilize Your Classroom: Mobile, 1:1, and BYOD Sessions at NEXT 2016

Posted in Schoology | June 01, 2016

In an age where technology is the go-to for news, social interaction, entertainment, and even a replacement for outdoor activities (I'm looking at you, Farmville), how do we create a community of independent learners who use technology responsibly and effectively? The presenters in Schoology NEXT 2016's Mobile, 1:1, and BYOD track have some great answers to this question.

They'll give you a fresh look at the technologies many students use regularly and demonstrate you how they’ve harnessed these devices to organize, customize, and optimize learning. Session topics in this track include mobile devices, 1:1, and BYOD implementation and management; app-integrated instruction; mobile-instructional workflow; and device management.

Below are the details for the Mobile, 1:1, and BYOD sessions this year. The post is long, so check them out by using the links below to jump down and the links labled "Top ^" to jump back up.
