Digital Fluency with Apple

Rethinking the Classroom with Mobile Technology

Today there are 5 billion mobile device users worldwide. This scale of adoption represents a fundamental shift in how we process and handle information, which has profound implications for formal education.

Global citizenship requires new levels of accountability for our students. Intercultural literacy is critically important to their success. Surrounding all of these goals is the question of how to leverage technology in these pursuits. When does technology work best for teaching and learning? When does it fall short?

This engaging and interactive talk will explore:

  • The disruptive force of mobile technology on long-held assumptions about good teaching, engaged learning, and student assessment;
  • Instructional best practices that reach across all disciplines and pedagogical interests; and
  • Profound possibilities of leveraging a mobile-connected world to improve access, accountability, and inclusivity for students.

John Landis headshotThis workshop will feature Dr. Jon Landis, part of Apple’s Education team for a lecture on how to leverage technology to transform learning.

Prior to Apple, Dr. Landis served as a college of education professor, chemistry teacher, principal, curriculum director and information technology director in Pennsylvania. He holds a Ph.D in Sociology, a Masters in Education Leadership, and a BS in Chemistry.
