Byte-Sized Narratives: The Impact of Mobile Devices on Learning & Communication
All around the world, millions share the narratives of their lives in bite-sized chunks through SMS, status updates on Facebook, 140 character tweets, six second-videos, or memed images with a few words. These are our learning rituals, yet we rarely address this literacy in schools. In this session, we will explore these learning trends and discover ways to integrate them in our classes to engage our students.
