Concurrent Session 1

Sure, there’s an app for that, but sometimes limitations and in-app purchases leave you hungry for more. This session is for those that have adopted a new technology, tested its functionality, and have found it to be lacking in one or two key features. Join us for an interactive, hands-on session that embraces the philosophy “never settle” - when an app is missing what you need, it’s time to smash it (translation: combine it) with another app to create the ultimate learning object. App smashing (or app mashing) is an innovative technique that has users mixing and matching features of various web-based and mobile applications, thus extending the abilities of each app if used alone in isolation. The process allows both teachers and students to leverage creativity and ingenuity to create learning experiences focused on salient content and in full support of 21st century skills. Some of the master chefs from the Technology Test Kitchen will demonstrate strategies for app smashing, and provide recipes for combining some of their favorite free apps into exciting and engaging learning objects. They’ll then switch into Iron Chef mode and guide participants through the process of combining a featured app with another tool to create their own app smash. Come hungry for a fresh approach on integrating emerging technology into your teaching and learning.
