Building connections to enhance student engagement is essential and to be able to reach students using their mobile devices. Classroom activities must be accessible in a variety of formats to accommodate students at social events and anywhere from around the world! Faculty and students are increasingly reliant on mobile technology to build connections between students and their campuses. This presentation will discuss many free and simple web 2.0 tools to help improve student engagement in any course format. We will discuss tools to promote collaboration in groups, visual learning tools, uses of podcasting, add voice to the classroom, and uses for many Google® apps that will improve student interaction. This presentation will provide examples of how to use this technology to support today’s mobile learner and promote student engagement.
