The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) will introduce a powerful professional learning experience for teachers, tech coaches, and administrators who are interested in bringing their school up to digital age standards. The Verizon Mobile Learning Academy (VMLA) is a free, facilitated, 10-week online professional learning course for educators focusing on developing mobile learning at the school or district level.

Funded by ConnectED partner the Verizon Foundation and designed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), this 10-week course covers key areas for mobile learning integration efforts, including assessing institutional readiness, frameworks on technology integration, mobile lesson development, management strategies, and digital citizenship. Successful completion of the course also results in 2.5 CEU’s from Johns Hopkins School of Education for participants; all at no cost to schools and districts!

The program uses surveys to assess program impact, and collects suggestions for changes to the course to maximize usefulness. The first cohort, who completed the course in December 2014, reported a 30% increase in student engagement, a 28% increase in student learning, and a 48% increase in student technology proficiency.All participants are enrolled in the VMLA professional learning network (PLN) that affords them the opportunity to collaborate and share best practices with educators across the United States implementing mobile learning initiatives, as well.

Come and meet ISTE faculty to develop your own understanding about mobile learning, and learn about an amazing opportunity to take mobile learning at your school to the next level!
