Atomic Learning’s "Going Mobile" Atomic Catalyst course exposes teachers to a variety of tools and strategies to get the most out of mobile devices in the classroom.

The six-week online course focuses on developing strategies for including portable computing devices in classroom projects and lessons, including the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad™, and other cell phones and mobile computing platforms. Because these devices enable real time communication and feedback, as well as access to textbooks and reference sources, they open the door to educational innovations that take advantage of ubiquitous, "always on" computing and communication.

[The best part of the Going Mobile course was] sharing and seeing what other schools are doing with mobile devices," said one participant."[The course really helped to build my] understanding of the SAMR model and by using the Professional Development Workbook to help integrate technology into my lessons."

Focused on the effective application of technology in the classroom, every six- week Atomic Catalyst course includes a 1-hour weekly instructional webinar led by a highly-qualified facilitator, as well as online resources, collaborative discussions and facilitator feedback to help teachers build and apply new strategies and skills. The cost of the six-week course is $150 for an individual, and multiple seats can be purchased via PO.

For an additional fee, Atomic Catalyst courses are available for graduate credit. Educators can earn 2- and 3-credit options that are not only meaningful and classroom-ready but also affordable. For more information, visit http://store.atomiclearning.com/creditoptions.html.
