Mobile devices—whether school-provided or through BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiatives—have been steadily increasing their relevance and presence throughout classrooms everywhere. Putting these tech tools into the hands of learners can not only make learning more engaging, but also powerfully effective if implemented intentionally. The diversity of devices available (iPads/iPhones, Android devices, Chromebooks, etc.) creates a great opportunity for students to use whatever technology is available to them. The power of the mobile device isn’t necessarily the device itself, but how it is used in the educational space.
Too often, I have seen schools implement a technology resource such as mobile devices with no clear support or resources to make it truly meaningful. With the use of the MimioMobile™ collaboration app, you can integrate virtually any device you have in a classroom and bring out the true learning potential of the device. You can also deploy true collaborative lessons to each student device, as well as perform assessments. Who knew that the mobile devices you already own have built-in assessment capabilities that include multiple choice, true/false, as well as short answer and essay answer options? Using MimioMobile, you can bring out the real power and easily integrate your devices through simple assessments, giving you real-time feedback from your students.
There are a number of training resources you can use to learn more about all of the Mimio products and software. Discover how you can get started with MimioMobile from a Mimio expert teacher during our “Mimio Goes Mobile” Quick Learn session, offered on April 11 at 7:00pm ET and April 30 at 8:00pm ET.
