This workshop will present on a pilot mobile learning course being developed by the Goldin Institute, a Chicago-based nonprofit that works internationally to build grassroots partnerships for global change. A core part of the Institute's strategy is to train œpartners, community leaders across the globe who lead social change initiatives in their own communities on issues ranging from microcredit reform to the reintegration of child soldiers. In the workshop highlights of the course will be presented, giving participants the opportunity to explore the course on iPads (provided in the workshop), give feedback, and ask questions. Participants will then focus on activities related to designing mobile learning courses, with time to use some of the planning tools and heuristics presenters found most useful, to think through the design of their own mobile learning projects and project ideas.
