Unlocking Mobile Learning’s True Potential
Mobile learning has long been heralded as “what’s next” in education. With roots dating back many years – predating “mobile” devices as we know them today – mobile learning has been touted for its virtually limitless potential to improve the way learning is delivered on a global scale. But until recently, it largely failed to deliver on this promise.
Fortunately for educational institutions, teachers, and students—mobile learning is no longer a futuristic concept devoid of results. It’s here today, evolving quickly and having a positive impact on student performance and learning outcomes.
“Mobile devices have impacted nearly every field, from banking to politics, and are currently being used to increase productivity in numerous sectors. As these devices become increasingly prominent worldwide, there is a great deal of excitement building around mobile learning.”
– United Nations Educational, Social and Cultural Organization (2013)
In this evolution, a new “mobile-first” mindset is emerging.
Educational leaders are looking beyond the more obvious learning capabilities afforded by mobile technology, and thinking strategically about how mobile can be leveraged as a primary means of improving the student’s experience—far beyond its former role as a supporting or experimental medium.
This white paper discusses how educational service providers, academic institutions and corporations can unlock the benefits of a mobile-first strategy to realize the true potential of mobile learning. These benefits include increased student interaction and performance as well as higher levels of engagement.
The following topics will be addressed:
• An introduction to mobile learning and its benefits—with discussion regarding how this new model is impacting education today.
• Success stories and other evidence validating mobile learning as an effective teaching strategy.
• How to leverage a “mobile-first” strategy to unlock mobile learning’s true potential.
• Key features and benefits to consider when implementing a best-in-class mobile learning platform.
This breakthrough enables students to attend live classes on their tablet or smartphone—allowing them to unshackle from physical spaces, time limitations and even their desktops without losing the critical live teacher engagement that for centuries has been the hallmark of successful learning outcomes.
