Our Students Say

"The mLearning course has been one of the most engaging courses I have been involved in for many years. I found it useful, perplexing, interesting and challenging. Because I work in an IB school, the notion of 'just in time and just for me' is so compelling when thinking about the units of inquiry. I held two sessions for the staff to explore new ideas and to look at was to better utilize their iPads."
~Jeff Phillips, Primary Resource Coordinator, Copenhagen, Denmark

"The collaboration that took place during this class was amazing. It was like a professional development opportunity hopped up on steroids I not only met a ton of professionals all over the country that use mobile devices to maximize their instruction and overall learning in the classrooms, but I learned specific strategies to use them effectively."
