Journal of Leadership Education, v18 n1 p146-150 Jan 2019
This article showcases how mobile app technology can enhance leadership education through a new mobile app called "My Student Leader." "My Student Leader" represents a novel approach to leadership education so that students may use smartphone technology to enhance student leadership development on campus. The app facilitates the creation of Leader Plans associated with service learning activities and campus events which then can be emailed to team members, faculty and staff. There also is a section for students to write a Leadership Legacy reflection. This application brief addresses the stages of development of the app and the outcomes associated with mobile technology use for leadership education.
