The iPad, launched in 2010, has had a powerful impact on teaching learning. Now in its third incarnation, the device has changed how people think about mobile learning, 1-2-1 devices, bring your own devices and ubiquitous computing.

The growth and use of apps on the iPad has allowed for a variety of learning activities. There are thousands of apps that support teaching and learning.

Of course the iPad is not the only device to support mobile learning, we have smartphones, Android phones and tablets and Windows devices. Therefore delegates will be able to show off any mobile app.

This session will allow participants to show and share their favourite mobile apps, and explain how it supports teaching and learning.

The 80 minute session will allow participants 5 minutes to share, explain, demonstrate and explore how their favourite app supports teaching and learning. The key with this session is audience participation and delegates will be invited before and during the session to share their favourite apps.

Within the five minutes the delegate will demo their app and explain how it benefits the learning process.

Structure of session:

5 mins – Introduction and example

70 mins – 5 minutes to describe their favourite app

5 mins – Summary and voting on best app.

By the end of the session the delegates will have seen up to 14 different apps that support teaching and learning.


This session is key on delegates wanting and willing to share their favourite apps.

I am not using my iPad in teaching and learning but we have recently purchased a class set of these devices and I am keen to see what apps colleagues have used so as to gather some useful information.
