“Today’s teacher must be tech savvy and able to get things done on short notice. The “mobile” teacher also uses tablets and smartphones to get things done on the go. Mike will share tips on hot iOS and Android apps for managing class, creating content like presentations or handouts, and give some insight into some real-world documents and projects he’s undertaken with the help of mobile apps, sites and tools.”

Welcome everyone!

Thanks for your interest in my presentation – “The Mobile Teacher – Content Creation on the Go.” It’s a pleasure to offer some insight into great mobile apps for education.

I created an official page to reference for ongoing discussion. This enables us to continue after the presentation session. Do you have any comments, questions or app recommendations?

Please share any links by copying and pasting from another tab. I’ll be sharing some links and other content shortly (including a picture of the white board from the session). Thanks for participating!
