I've written a lot about mobile learning -- and there's a lot more to write about because it's a quickly growing and changing study.
But today at the Cyberlearning Tools for STEM Education Conference, I heard about the value of kids not just using mobile apps, but actually creating them.
Chris Thompson, Associate Director Evaluation & Technology, Georgia Tech, talked about the university's Mobile Learning Laboratory (MoLLy). Thompson enumerated some of what kids learn while they're creating apps:
- How to create media (animation, audio, video)
- Game design (different genres, set of rules and play, how to best engage users)
