The goal of this project was to create and disseminate teaching activities using smartphones. We used information from focus groups and advisory boards including students, teachers, and professionals to develop 10 academic activities using smartphones that teachers can use. These include short videos, written lesson plans, and publications on the SALTISE website. For more information contact Anick Legault (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Laura King (email@example.com).
We created four YouTube videos and have two deliverables on the SALTISE website. The URLs are provided below.
