  36. 36. Measuring the Impact<br />
  37. 37. Review mobile technologies and ask…<br />What would be the ramifications and opportunities for learning if this technology were adopted?<br />What kinds of teaching and learning engagements might this technology: make better or enable?<br />If we decide to do a pilot, what kind of evaluation methodology can we overlay on the project to assess outcomes?<br />What kind of additional research needs to be done concerning this technology?<br />
  38. 38. Join ELI as we Seek Evidence of Impact<br />Advance evidence-based applications of learning innovation<br />Encourage the teaching and learning community to explore new ways of gathering evidence<br />
