Mobile learning guidance for school leaders

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) today launched Leadership for Mobile Learning (LML), a new initiative to help school district leaders overcome barriers to mobile learning, and develop, implement and manage policies to effectively use mobile devices to improve teaching and learning.

The objectives of the new initiative are three-fold: 1) to highlight leadership, research and best practices for using mobile learning devices as effective tools in teaching and learning; 2) to identify district policies that hinder the effective deployment of mobile learning devices; and 3) to develop strategies and tools for the successful deployment of mobile learning technologies in school districts. In addition, the initiative will provide information on the role of mobility in bridging the digital divide, technical considerations for mobile learning implementation and the impact of mobile devices on curricular content and student achievement.
