Webinar Recording Details



How do you match the power of distributed, cloud-based computing combined with appropriate learning theories? mLearning theory mashups provide the same granularity in learning design as technology mashups.

Don't let your learning design take a back seat to your mobile technology. Apply a powerful model that puts learning first. Come see leading-edge examples from Google, the military, Johnson & Johnson, and others.

In this session, you will learn:
  • The learning theories that are the most unique and relevant to mobile delivery
  • A learning theory mashup framework for combining multiple learning theories
  • How to develop a mashup curriculum and apply mobile technology
  • How to develop a blended learning plan for cloud computing
  • How to benchmark examples of successful learning theory mashups
  • Recommendations with how to integrate mobile apps
  • Audience: appropriate for all levels

Technologies discussed in this session: Mobile, messaging, Podcasting, video streaming, mobile LMS integration, cloud computing, alternate reality games.

About Dr. David Metcalf

David Metcalf has more than 20 years' experience in the design and research of web-based and mobile technologies converging to enable learning and healthcare.

Dr. Metcalf is Director of the Mixed Emerging Technology Integration Lab (METIL) at UCF's Institute for Simulation and Training. The team has built mHealth solutions, simulations, games, eLearning, mobile and enterprise IT systems for Google, J&J, VA, U.S. military and UCF's College of Medicine among others. Recent projects include Lake Nona’s Intelligent Home prototype and SignificantTechnology, a mobile-enabled online degree and eResource kit.

Dr. Metcalf encourages spinoffs from the lab as part of the innovation process and has launched Moving Knowledge and several other for-profit and nonprofit ventures as examples. In addition to research and commercial investments, he supports social entrepreneurship in education and health.

Dr. Metcalf continues to bridge the gap between corporate learning and simulation techniques and non-profit and social entrepreneurship. Simulation, mobilization, mobile patient records and medical decision support systems, visualization systems, scalability models, secure mobile data communications, gaming, innovation management and operational excellence are current research topics.

Dr. Metcalf frequently presents at industry and research events shaping business strategy and use of technology to improve learning, health and human performance.
