Today is day 2 of the three day Dublin eLearning Summer School (#elss15), which is facilitated each year by the Learning, Teaching & Technology Centre at the Dublin Institute of Technology. More information on the Summer School can be found on our site here. We had a great day yesterday with approximately 50 attendees who come from very varied backgrounds (ITs, Universities, private industry, Education and Training Boards etc.) and the discussions so far have been very interesting and lively, and #elss15 was trending on Twitter! The sessions are being streamed and you can join us online at http://goo.gl/upo9w4.
Tomorrow at 11am, a sample of some of the really innovative mobile learning projects that are active in DIT and DCU at the moment will be up for discussion. These include using Socrative for both summative and formative assesment; apps used to help flip lectures; mirroring an iPad to a laptop so that content on the iPad can be displayed via an overhead projector; building apps for free; promotion of apps amongst students that support their academic journey; and using Kaizena to provide student feedback. Thanks for Aidan Meade, Colin Freeman, Trevor Boland, Nevan Bermingham and Pip Ferguson for getting involved. I’m looking forward to it!
