Abstract: Access to mobile technologies has been on the rise in Nigeria and developing countries alike. Schools embrace the use of technology more than before. However, there were not enough technology professional needs across all levels of education. In this roundtable session, the presenter will present to the attendees an advanced design of a technology professional development app that educators could use to develop their technological pedagogical and content knowledge. The presenter would seek feedback in these areas: development of a prototype, the design of analytics tools, identify beta-testers, release, how to capture metrics, and upgrade.
