Old School to New School: Games & Mobile Learning
    Education is stuck in the past. Yet, after decades of incubation, technology is revolutionizing teaching, learning, and assessment. Around the world, people are increasingly using mobile devices to connect with each other and the Internet. This transition is laying the foundation for exponential growth in mobile learning. Simultaneously, games are being adopted as tools for teaching and assessment of higher-order thinking. This panel consists of experts from industry, higher education, and K-12. They will discuss and answer questions about technology’s potential to solve today’s most pressing education issues. Dr. Paul Resta is a professor at UT Austin. Dr. Michael Mayrath was a Harvard Postdoctoral Fellow and is CEO of GYLO (GetYa Learn On) – an educational software company specializing in mobile learning & game-based assessment. Dr. Priya Nihalani was a UT University Fellow and is GYLO’s Chief Scientist. David Conover teaches game design at Connally High School, Pflugerville ISD.
