Thank you to everyone at EdWeb for making this partnership happen! I’m Lucy Gray. I’m a former classroom teacher and technology integration coach, now working as a consultant. One of these projects is the Consortium for School Networking’s Leadership for Mobile learning initiative which will be the focus of today’s webinar. First, I’d like to tell you about our partnership with EdWeb on Mobile Learning Explorations. I will follow with a brief overview of CoSN’s work in order to put LML in context. Then, I will tell you about the goals of our mobile learning initiative, followed by an overview of 5 schools we recently profiled in a case study. At the end of this webinar, we will have time for questions and answers!
There are several initiatives that CoSN has organized which have tools and case studies for 21st century school leaders.
So let’s talk about our mobile learning initiative a little more indepth.
We really want to this to be a robust and interactive initiative. We also believe in modeling the use of Web 2.0 tools for our membership.
EdWeb and CoSN are pleased to kick off this webinar series and Edweb community. Make sure to visit this site on an ongoing basis for additional resources and conversations. If you have follow up questions after this webinar, this is is a good place to engage with others.
Our most recent deliverable has been a set of case studies for the CoSN annual compendium.
