Bite-Sized Narratives: The Impact of Mobile Devices on Learning and Communication


Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 4.01.09 PMAll around the world, millions share the narratives of their lives in bite-sized language through SMS, status updates on Facebook, 140 character tweets, six second-videos, or memed images. These are our learning rituals in our digital society. Our students create, produce, direct, summarize, translate, and share stories outside of learning institutions daily. In this webinar for the Mobile Learning Explorations community, Shelly Sanchez Terrell explored these learning trends and shared ways to integrate them in our classes to engage our students. Attendees also learned simple and quick ways to effectively teach digital literacy and citizenship. View the webinar to learn how to use your students’ bite-sized narratives to improve their learning.
