Many schools are beginning to see the potential and effectiveness of using mobile devices to improve literacy, because they get students engaged in skills such as note taking, bookmarking, scanning information, and summarizing large amounts of reading. Mobile devices, such as an iPad or a smartphone, allow learners to develop these literacy skills on the go. In part 2 of this 2-part webinar series, join Shelly Terrell as she covers various aggregation and curation apps and tips, as well as how to use them for assessment.
