Get Learners Moving With Mobile Devices

Get Learners Moving With Mobile Devices

“Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of learners.” – John Holt

Unlike many other technologies, mobile devices can support physical health along with learning. With a mobile device students can create, problem solve, critical think, and engage with the world around them. With the right activities, teachers can get learners out of their desks observing and learning about their surroundings and engaging with realia. In my digital book, Learning to Go, you’ll find rubrics, handouts, and lesson plans for some of the activities listed below. Check out my slide presentation (download for free) and the bookmarks below to discover apps and resources to get your students moving with their devices. For more great resources, check out my previous post, Pair Activities with Mobile Devices.
