207 Building a Smarter Classroom by Shifting Your mLearning IQ
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Tuesday, June 24
Selecting and purchasing mLearning technology to enhance classroom learning is getting more difficult as options proliferate. Tactical decisions today can have long-term consequences for near-term budgets, mid-term learning, and long-term lifecycle support. You need a way to sort through all the options, limits, and restrictions based on various use-cases and learner needs.
In this session you will deconstruct several use-cases from higher education and military training to isolate a successful mLearning technology selection process. You will apply this process to your own organizational limits and use-case requirements, and then craft an effective mLearning technology proposal. You will leave this session with the tools to capture a matrix of requirements for your specific mLearning use-case that will enable you to isolate your two or three governing limits from a sea of technical possibilities. You’ll learn how to structure an mLearning technology proposal to win over upper management.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why there has never been a better time to bring mLearning to the classroom
- Why tactical purchases must be supported by a lifecycle learning strategy
- How to isolate your two or three governing limits from a sea of technical possibilities
- How to capture a matrix of requirements for your specific mLearning use-case
- How to structure an mLearning technology proposal to win over upper management
