Participants will explore the use of Gallery Walk Approach in education. It explores the role of mobile technologies in education; offers creative strategies and possibilities for integrating mobile technologies into K-20 curriculum; and demonstrates examples such as StarTalk grant using mobile technologies to teach Hindi and Global Kitchen Project to develop healthy eating habits; and showcases participants’ projects as a virtual gallery walk. We present a wide range of meanings participants associated with experiential project based learning activities; the impact of mobile technologies in developing multicultural and multilingual curriculum that promotes differentiated learning; the ways in which participants integrated math, maps and media into their learning; and how they gained alternative points of view on global issues and renewed interest and commitment to world languages and global education.
