How to Implement Mobile Learning: Practical Considerations.

Date : Thursday, June 02, 2011,
Time : 01.00 PM - 02.00 PM Eastern Time (U.S. & Canada)

Mobile learning should not just be traditional e-learning on a smaller device. So what are the key considerations when planning for mobile learning? For what learning situations is mobile learning a good fit? What are the best uses of mobile learning? How can mobile learning support other types of learning in the organization?

Tom Werner, chief research officer, Brandon Hall Group, will share insights on what to think about when planning for the implementation of mobile learning.

Models of Blended Learning: What Works for Your District
Thursday, June 9, 2 p.m. EDT,
Also available "on demand" any time 24 hours after the event.

We know that districts are being held accountable for more, and being asked to do so with less funding. As a result, districts today are looking for new ways to effectively implement technology that can engage students and boost academic achievement.
Blended learning, the teaching practice that combines both face-to-face and online learning, offers several models of instruction to engage students in and out of the classroom. It has proven highly effective in helping schools and districts address the challenges of student achievement, limited resources, and the expectations of 21st-century learners. It is also the fastest growing component of online learning.

Join us for an in-depth discussion on blended learning led by two experienced practitioners, Pam Willingham and Dorothy Hirata. Hear about the many teaching and learning objectives they are meeting through the implementation of a blended learning program. Also learn how the two districts have grown the level of adoption by their faculty over time by championing accomplishments of the program. You will also hear from John Canuel, who will briefly talk about current online learning trends and how Blackboard can help you address several of your current academic challenges.
