Library Instruction for Mobile Devices

Hello everyone,

I wanted to make sure you were aware of this webinar series from Boise State:

We are very excited to present about our mobile learning activities, and look forward to answering your questions about them. This year we taught many in class sessions using iPads to teach freshmen. We also expanded our offerings online using instructional videos to do so.

Please note that Albertsons Library is presenting Library Instruction for Mobile Devices on February 14, 11am Mountain Time (see below). Please sign up and join us if you can.

There is another webinar taking place November 29 about how Boise State encouraged faculty to get started in mobile learning.

Please ask if you have any questions!

Library Instruction for Mobile Devices
Albertsons Library has successfully leveraged the use mobile devices for helping students learn research skills. Librarians are now going to classrooms and teaching two
instruction sessions — 1) finding information and 2) evaluating information. The library sessions provide hands-on, active learning opportunities for student teams,
built around the use of iPads to explore library resources. In fall 2012, this included instruction to seventy-four classes in Boise State’s “University Foundations 100” course,
the first course in our general education program. Ten classes of junior level transfer students received an additional session — 3) advanced searching techniques.
The instruction curriculum is purposefully designed using mobile teaching and learning strategies.
