Screen shot 2013-12-12 at 5.17.14 PMAre you aware of the impact that mobile devices can have on learning?  Smart phones and tablets with access to the Internet literally place all of the world’s knowledge at our fingertips.  Teaching students and their families how to use mobile devices to access online resources gives them the ability to learn anytime and anywhere.  As educators, we know that student achievement increases when parents are involved.  In the Mobile Learning Explorations community’s December webinar, Sara Stewart and Terra Graves of the Washoe County School District in Nevada, shared ideas and strategies for teachers to use to design learning opportunities that encourage and support active participation at home, thus strengthening the learning partnership between families and schools.  Sara and Terra discuss many practical examples for how to increase family engagement and extend learning with mobile even when doing every day activities.
