F204 – BYOD = Learning in Their Hands: Teaching Students to Use Personal Devices for Learning
Thursday, March 22, 2012
2:30 PM – 3:15 PM
Instructional Media and Technology Coordinator, Osseo Area Schools and Information and Technology Educators of Minnesota (ITEM)
Three years ago, a few classrooms in three Osseo Area Schools in Minnesota piloted Project Copernicus, which allowed students to use their own technology in school. Since then, the project has expanded to 12 schools and more than 70 classrooms. It is facilitated by wireless access in every learning space, and schools have purchased sets of NOOKS, iPod touches, and iPads. When that is combined with Google Apps for Education to provide access to shared documents, opportunities for collaboration expand dramatically. This session describes some of the projects these schools have done with mobile devices and Google Apps. Nelson presents steps to implement mobile devices and/or student-provided technology and describes ways to integrate those devices as seamless parts of student learning.
