How do you keep your students attention and utilize the technology they are becoming the best at using? Instead of working against the technology, embrace the mobile device and use it to your advantage. As their popularity continues to grow, the use of mobile devices, in online education has not. In the future, will classrooms be completely mobile? With the changes and advances in technology the only answer is yes. As online educators, we have to be ahead of the curve and consider where to go in facilitating the classroom, thinking outside the box to the one we hold in our hands and put in our pockets. We will cover the history, references, resources and theory behind using the mobile device as a component of the online classroom and creating a new digital hybrid.
