Abstract: With the increased demand for mobile devices, educators have numerous opportunities to integrate mobile technologies into daily activities and the curriculum. Educators and students can use mobile devices for increased productivity and learning, but oftentimes need integration ideas. This paper discusses ideas about integration to maximize learning and productivity. Specifically, software applications (apps) are continuously invented and upgraded, which invite new opportunities to enhance curricula, increase productivity, and maximize learning outcomes. Further, “the cloud” offers software suites, virtual storage, and productivity tools, which are exciting for students when the classroom offers ways to use them. Learning “on the go” can be harnessed in today’s busy lifestyles. This paper discusses a customized mobile learning blog that provides access to the latest tools as well as pedagogical considerations that reveal instructional activities with mobile technologies for education.
