AUSTIN - Abilene Christian University is attracting international attention for creating what many regard as a model mobile learning and teaching program, ACU Connected.
The university is scaling what it’s learned about mobile learning in higher education to K-12. ACU is training K-12 teachers on how to integrate mobile technologies and 21st century skills into the classroom.
The program is currently featured on the POWERONTEXAS.com website, a professional development website established by the Texas Education Agency. In 2010, the website showcased promising practices of technology integration in Texas school districts. This year, TEA is focusing on educator preparation programs. It selected ACU as an example of a program that has integrated technology into its teacher training program.
