This workshop profiles the Teacher Learning and Leadership Project (TLLP) mobile technology initiative. The project has created resources that enable teachers to develop dynamic, media rich learning experiences (i.e., video podcast lectures, narrated slide presentations, and web-based mobile content) and implement differentiated instruction and assessment practices.
This presentation provides examples, resources and access to online materials (available on the Near North District School Board Educational Technology Wiki) to support teachers attempting to utilize new media and technology to support differentiated teaching and learning.
Four brief teacher profiles related to the project are presented:

  • Creating Mobile Websites: using iWeb,
  • An Introduction to Podcasting: using iMovie
  • Audio Assessment: using Voice Memos
  • Screen Capture: Smart Board meets iPod Touch

The workshop provides an in-depth analysis and information regarding audio & video assessment; using audio and video to document student achievement in experiential learning.
