eNetColorado Certified Facilitators Provided for Each Course

DATES, TIMES, NUMBER OF SESSIONS:

Course begins July 10th  Late registration open  until midnight July 17th.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  In this blended –learning course, participants will learn how even the most basic cell phones can be used as powerful tools for teaching and learning.  When integrated with free, web-based tools and resources, cell phones offer students and teacher, the ability to share ideas through activities such as blogging, podcasting, and data gathering. While there are many legitimate concerns about using cell phones in schools, it is important that schools prepare students for success in a world overflowing with information. It is also important for students to learn how to use technology ethically and responsibly. This course will highlight meaningful ways that cell phones can be used as learning tools in and out of  the classroom, while also addressing the challenges and resistance that many educators face when trying to integrate cell phones into learning activities.

This is a six-week course.

You will receive 30 continuing education units or 2 graduate credit hours from Adams State.
