In this hands-on workshop participants will experience firsthand the magic of mobile learning. How can it be used in a learning environment? Why digital literacy must be included among our skills to be truly literate in todays world. We will review a number of social media tools (Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Google voice etc) that can be utilized with cell phones and share lesson plans that outline how to use them with learners. If you have a cell phone, please bring it. However, those without cell phones are still welcome to attend.
