FEATURE: Video: Enriching Scholarship 2012: Keynote - Dr. Elliot Soloway [94 min.]
Dr. Elliot Soloway "The planet is entering headlong into the Age of Mobilism. The hallmark of this new age is connections: connections to people, to events, to places, to things -- immediate, multiple, and simultaneous connections. The affordances of a mobile learning device, that miraculously-thin, aluminum-encased slab of glass that is essentially embedded in one's hand, are engendering changes in beliefs, values, and practices in all areas of human endeavor, from accounting to zoological research -- and even in K-12!
|In this presentation overview, Dr. Soloway states "I will (1) describe the characteristics of this Age of Mobilism and I will (2) describe how those mobile devices are the catalyst in the transformation of the classroom from "I Teach," a teacher-centric, didactic, direct instruction, 19th century, boring and ineffective pedagogy to "We Learn," a student-centric, project-based, inquiry-oriented, 21st-century pedagogy."
