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 😉

iPad in Education wiki

I came across this wiki on my travels today. I’ll admit, it’s not very interesting visually but it’s passed with some great resources regarding using iPads in schools. It even has some useful links to implementation plans and a categorised section for apps used in different stages of schooling. Check it out when you get a chance.
