Mashing It Up at a Big University
|Conference||2008 NMC Symposium on Mashups|
|Conference Track||General Session|
While most of our faculty and students don't realize they are creating mashups, some amazing things are happening on our campus. Here at Penn State University we've worked very hard to create flexible platforms to support faculty and students' use of emerging technologies for teaching and learning. What we are starting to see is amazing to us. During this session we will highlight examples of faculty and student mashups from PSU -- some of which are directly supported by our Education Technology Services group and some that are just showing up. We will cover the PSU Platform for Digital Expression that is empowering faculty innovation, discuss issues facing implementing mashups at a large university, show real examples that are emerging on campus, and discuss how we facilitate effective creative use by both teachers and learners.
