In an era when teaching is increasingly focused on mobile devices and the internet, the American Educational Research Association (EARA) is releasing a new set of teaching materials for teachers and students.
The new materials are designed to help teachers better use the power of mobile devices to teach students and teach themselves.
The new curriculum includes interactive online tools for teachers, and the first set of materials were released today.
The materials are the brainchild of the National Center for Educational Research (NCEAR), the research arm of the US Department of Education.
They are intended to help educators better utilize and use mobile devices for classroom learning.
“This is the first time that the ERO has released these new materials, which will help educators improve their teaching by leveraging the power that these devices bring to teaching,” said Chris McBride, director of the EREA.
“Ero is using the mobile-learning power of these devices to create educational learning experiences for teachers.”
The ERO aims to provide materials for educators, parents, students and other stakeholders to create learning experiences that work best for them.
The materials are available for download through the Ero Teaching Portal.
“Mobile learning is the most popular use of technology in the classroom,” said Daniel Nierenberg, chief technology officer of the University of Minnesota.
“Students, teachers and administrators are using mobile devices in ways that are different from ever before.”
Teachers and students are using these devices, he said, “to learn about new and emerging technologies, to explore the world around them, to work together on projects and to engage in interactive learning.”
Mobile devices have become increasingly popular in the US education system, especially among teachers.
According to NIErenberg and other experts, there are nearly 4.6 million mobile devices that are in use in the U.S. today.
That number is expected to increase to more than 7 million by 2020.
According to the latest statistics from the U-verse Educational Technology Association, mobile education has become more popular for elementary school teachers in the last few years.
The number of students using smartphones has grown from 5 percent in 2014 to 11 percent in 2016.
