Mobile technology continues to grow, and that can be clearly seen on college campuses across the country. However, the educational use of mobile technology in higher ed is just beginning to form, but it is indeed forming. Most colleges and universities are using mobile learning as an extension of their Learning Management System.
Based on the 2011 Edition of the Horizon Report, the adaption of mobile technologies in education is expected to occur at a much higher right within the next year. To help faculty to prepare for this new wave of learning, TLT has set our theme for the year as The Mobile Evolution: Learning on the Go! Our Faculty Technology Institutes will focus on various apps that can be used for learning and best practices in using them. If you’re unable to attend an FTI, there will be many more professional development opportunities throughout the year.
