Lessons Learning: Engaging Students with a Projector-Less Presentation and Subsequent Data from the Student Experience
NearPod is an interactive presentation tool that allows for interaction with students and content with nothing but an Internet connection. This session examines the implementation of NearPod using iPads in a classroom and discusses student perceptions of these technologies via data gathered at the beginning and end of the semester.

The Development of Mobile Applications for Use in Biology Courses—A Multidisciplinary Approach
Mobile apps for use in biology courses will be described in this presentation. The apps were developed by IST students, and these students were involved in the entire process, from requirements gathering through development to testing the effectiveness of the apps in student learning.

Online Social Communities as Research Communities
Social networks allow students and faculty to share ideas outside of class, but they can also encourage the sharing of research and commentary in a community of scholars. The website Scoop.it engenders this community by transforming bibliographies and literature reviews into discourse and scholars into editors of online academic aggregation.

Using QR Codes to Reach Beyond the Classroom
This session will detail my Media Commons Mobile Media Pilot project from the fall 2013 semester. The project involved students using iPad minis to create strength training instructional videos and then link them to QR codes which were posted in the campus weight room. This allowed any campus community member to utilize the codes to learn an exercise. This session will examine the process used in this project and will look at both the faculty member’s experience with it, as well as the students’ experience. Attendees will be able to view the instructional videos, either online or through the QR codes (requires a free QR reader app on a smartphone).
