Mobile Learning Week (MLW) is the flagship UNESCO conference on mobile technologies and education. Held annually, this event assembles a diverse group of stakeholders to share how affordable and widespread mobile technologies can advance Education for All goals.
TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ON A PHONE: YES, THERE ARE APPS FOR THAT!
This workshop provided participants with mobile phone apps for assisting teachers with professional development (PD) training and resources designed for supporting and engaging students from diverse underserved backgrounds, multi-languages, and multicultural global settings. Participants also received professional development Apps that will assist them with selecting appropriate apps for their programs, content area, productivity, communication, online courses, and continuing education over their smart phones. Participants also received a quality standard rubric for evaluating mobile apps for PD and create an individualized online App LiveBinder to continue their on-going professional development activities after the workshop.
Participants were encouraged to bring their smart phone (Apple, Androids, Windows, Blackberry, etc.) to learn how to use their device as an on-going PD and educational tool for teaching and learning.
