BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Classroom settings have changed throughout the coronavirus pandemic, causing teachers to find new ways to engage with their students virtually.
Mobile applications, Zoom meetings, and online virtual chats are breaking education barriers in almost every classroom.
That’s why Northeast Mississippi Community College’s (NEMCC) mobile learning conference has become so crucial in the distance learning process.
“The student is the most important part of any institution, and we must put out a great student,” NEMCC President Ricky Ford said.
This year, the conference went virtual because of the pandemic, with attendance exploding to more than 1,800 people from 38 different states and 22 different countries.
“Our focus this year is remote learning and our transition from a seated type of instruction to a digital instruction,” panelist Michelle Baragona said.
A transition that’s become imperative since the coronavirus pandemic started.
Fifty presenters and more than 70 sessions offered new insight into keeping things creative in the classroom.
The mobile learning conference is held each year in June. It has become one of the top conferences in the country for mobile learning and technology.
