Full Session Description:
Build Curriculum for any Mobile Device – Build Once, Learn Anywhere
We’ll demonstrate a simple way to deliver blended learning to student mobile devices using the new eBuilder. The mobile eBuilder tool allows teachers to build digital eTextbooks, activities, and lesson plans with very simple drag-and-drop skills through a computer’s browser. Digital content can be saved as an app that can be downloaded to any smartphone, tablet, Apple or Android device. Come get a demonstration of the tool, sign up for your free creator account, and get started building content. Every attendee will get their own mini-mobile marketplace to share content with your students, friends, or members.
In practice, the eBuilder is so easy to use, that teachers with only the most basic computer skills can build rich content in minutes, combining text, video, weblinks, and quizzes - and delivering that content immediately to any student mobile device. The eBuilder is an absolute cornerstone for any school implementing Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) programs. Content is fluidly adapted and changed to meet the specific learning needs of any student, or curriculum goals. It reduces the need for ongoing support because there are no technology barriers for late-adopting technology users.
