Nobody knows more about education techniques with measurement and geometry than maths teachers. But when it comes to teaching this content strand, what can smart mobile devices and place-based learning contribute and how can they facilitate the learning process? This workshop will give you some answers! It will show you new ways to put mobile technology together with rich media, geo-location, gamification and storytelling together to deliver an interactive and exciting way for teaching and learning maths while also developing the ICT capability of students. You will start inside the conference venue and learn more about the potential of location-based mobile learning as an educational tool. Next it’s outside in small groups to play a place-based mobile game on your mobile device then return to learn more on how to assemble and publish one of your own. Participants should have the Mobile Learning Academy app (iPhone or Android) installed on their mobile device before the workshop.
