Product description

Review

"This infinitely practical work tackles a topic most educators avoid. It is my hope that with Kipp's guidance, teachers and principals will begin to rethink long-held policies that have kept legitimate tools for learning out of the hands of today's students."

--William Ferriter, Sixth-Grade Teacher and Author

"Mobile Learning Devices is well-written, easy to ready, and contains a perfect combination of theory, research, and practice. If you are an educator moving into the world of MLDs, this book provides the information you ll need. And if you are already there, it will help you to improve and enhance your program."

--Tammy Worcester, Instructional Technology Specialist, Educational Services and Staff Development Association of Central Kansas

"As a principal I have personally experienced apprehension when it came to integrating mobile learning devices in school. Kipp Rogers does an exceptional job of alleviating many of the common fears that principals have in regard to MLDs and presents practical integration strategies."

--Eric Sheninger, Principal, New Milford High School, New Milford, New Jersey --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
