Posted on | August 29, 2012 | No Comments

And the 1st thing we all need to read is this!

Why we need to get mobiles into the hands of students!

Yes you read correct.

We need to be thinking in terms of the 4th screen that is used with different space and time implications.

Lets face it the phone is everywhere, even in the washroom, so lets start to think in terms of anywhere anytime learning!

Here is the why list.

1. CONTINUOUS LEARNING

2. EDUCATIONAL LEAPFROGGING

3. A NEW CROP OF OLDER, LIFELONG LEARNERS (AND EDUCATORS)

4. BREAKING GENDER BOUNDARIES, REDUCING PHYSICAL BURDENS

5. A NEW LITERACY EMERGES: SOFTWARE LITERACY

6. EDUCATION’S LONG TAIL

7. TEACHERS AND PUPILS TRADE ROLES

8. SYNERGIES WITH MOBILE BANKING AND MOBILE HEALTH INITIATIVES

9. NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR TRADITIONAL EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

10. A REVOLUTION LEADING TO CUSTOMIZED EDUCATION

The key for successfully channeling the mLearning revolution will not simply be about digitizing current educational systems. The real appeal will be allowing people to choose their own paths, leverage their talents, and follow their passions and callings. MLearning has much business potential, but the most exciting and rewarding aspect of these solutions is that students of any age or background might have the chance to pursue knowledge that is meaningful, relevant, and realistic to achieve in their own lives.
