Our Summer meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists’ group is due to take place on Monday 29th June 2015, 12:00-16:00, Loughborough University.


Let’s get mobile!

Mobile devices give us a unique opportunity to have learners embedded in a realistic context at the same time as having access to supporting tools” (FUTURELAB, 2004). Jisc use this quote as part of their Mobile Learning Infokit and it helps to set the scene for our next EMLT meeting about mobile learning. During the event we will look to explore the benefits and challenges associated with going mobile and provide a variety of examples of how mobile technologies have been used to support learning.


Call for presentations

We’d still like some Pecha Kucha sessions, presentations from our community – 6 minute presentations with images – where you tell us about the approaches you have taken using mobile technologies to support learning, so please complete the form if you’re happy to present.
