The University of Notre Dame hosted its 2014 Mobile Conference this week on campus.
This year’s conference is centered on the topic of mobile learning. After successfully working to educate campus about the availability and features of mobile technologies on campus, it’s time to explore the next step – the interaction of mobile technology with teaching, learning and scholarship at Notre Dame.
Mobile technology has become such an ingrained portion of our daily lives, and this naturally has an impact on academic efforts. This year’s Mobile Conference approaches this topic from several angles and examines how we may best make use of mobile technologies while fulfilling our academic goals.
