Empowering learners with mobile learning
MetadataShow full item record
Anytime and anywhere learning is here with mobile learning. The use of mobile technologies will allow adult learners to access learning materials and support from anywhere and at anytime. Adult learners work full-time or have other obligations that could interfere with their learning. At the same time, some adults are mobile in their work and personal life. Mobile technology will empower learners by placing learning in the hands (pockets) of adults. However, in order for mobile learning to be effective, the learning materials must be designed properly and adequate support must be provided. This workshop will present guidelines for designing learning materials for mobile learning, demonstrate examples of mobile learning projects, and describe strategies to provide support for learners and how to implement successful mobile learning projects. Also, results of mobile learning research projects will be presented so that workshop participants can learn from the experience of previous projects.
