Topic: Mobile Learning & Student Assessment
The impact of educational technologies on student learning outcomes is notoriously difficult to assess because of the challenges of isolating the impact from confounding variables. At California State University Northridge, we designed a micro-assessment strategy that aligns evidence gathering with activity, course, or program student learning outcomes.
As part of a university-wide program, a mobile learning curriculum was developed to engage, enhance and improve the learning outcomes for First Year Experience students. The implementation of tablet curriculum encourages the most at-risk college freshmen to actively engage in the academic conversation and succeed in a technology-enriched instructional environment.
