The 2010 Online Spring Focus Session includes web-based presentations and participant discussions exploring new ways to facilitate teaching and learning with a variety of mobile technology options. The session will bring together professionals from across the country to explore how mobile technologies can support the development of content, community and collaboration. The program will include a series of keynote presentations, general sessions, project parlors, and discussion breaks designed to help participants connect more deeply with the content and one another.
Presentations for the Online Spring Focus Session will be offered in real-time inside an Adobe Connect virtual learning space. Inside the virtual space, participants can submit questions and communicate with colleagues using the chat feature. Live polls, interactive whiteboards, and breakout rooms will offer attendees a chance to communicate with one another and participate in active knowledge building. Materials and resources for the Focus Session can be found in the Learning Commons.
