Description/Other Details
In this presentation, students at the Harvard Graduate School of Education will present research they conducted on the background, relevance, and importance of blended and mobile learning for English Language Learners — and other special needs students — of all ages. In addition, they will describe rubrics they created for choosing and using mobile applications for students and provide links to online resources for teachers. The presentation will end with a discussion of how social media can benefit and enhance your own professional development and learning networks.
