Free ePub – Making Learning Mobile

Last year, I was asked to present at the BEAQ conference in Brisbane. The BEAQ is the Business Educators Association of Queensland, who generally have a member base of, as the name would suggest, Business Studies educators who predominantly work in secondary colleges across the state of Queensland.

My workshop focused on the following areas:
1. Benefits of using mobile technology within and outside of the classroom
2. SAMR model and how it relates to planning and delivering lessons using mobile technology
3. Edmodo – How Edmodo can be used in your classroom with detailed explanations and tutorials about the Edmodo Workflow
4. Showbie – The future of assessment and feedback for students and teachers including detailed explanations and tutorials about the Showbie Workflow

As part of the workshop, I created a multitouch book with all of the content that I presented on the day. The ePub file can be downloaded by clicking on the link below. Please note the due to the video content within this book, the current file size is roughly 215mb but well worth the wait I assure you. I am in the process of applying for the relevant accreditation to publish this book via iTunes so get it while it’s free 😉

Hello 2012! Hello Edmodo.

I am currently enjoying my summer holidays in the sun. I have met with some inspiring educators and discussed some new ideas for the coming year. I shared how I have been using Edmodo with my students and how I have found it to be a great tool for encouraging communication and sharing ideas and resources with students outside of the classroom. I’ve also found the teacher connections to be an amazing way of gaining and sharing resources with educators from around the world. Edmodo is well worth a look. Check it out and be sure to look me up here

Posting homework on Edmodo is simple. It allows you to post the work and attach a due date, it then notifies you when the students have submitted their completed work.

An Edmodo is also available on iPad and iPhone. Both are mobile versions of the whole site and therefor slightly limiting but they’re more than fine for posting quick replies to student questions and for performing a range of simple tasks while out of the classroom.


As stated earlier, Edmodo is well worth a look, especially if you join a few teacher community pages that interest you as an educator. You are sure to find loads of useful resources from like minded teachers worldwide.
