REMINDER: Mobile Portland invites panel of educators to discuss mobile and education tonight
While we all find a great deal of satisfaction and entertainment in mucking with technology day in and day out, every once in awhile, it’s nice to actually do something with it. Yes, yes. Even if it’s that shiny new mobile technology.
So tonight, Mobile Portland will be discussing not only something to do with technology but something very worthwhile—the use of mobile technology for education.
At Mobile Portland this month we’re pleased to have a prestigious panel of educators who are on the cutting edge of using mobile technology in the classroom. The panelists will cover topics like:
- What role do mobile devices have in the classroom?
- When are mobile phones useful and when are they distracting?
- Do mobile devices need to be issued by the school or are there ways to take advantage of devices that students own?
- What are the challenges to effectively using mobile devices in education?
The panel includes Russ DeVore, George Fox University; Trina Marmarelli, Reed College; Joe Morelock, Canby School District; and Corey Pressmen, Exprima Media. The panel is moderated by Thor Prichard, Clarity Innovations.
