Realizing the Potential of Mobile Learning

The recently released "Turning on Mobile Learning in North America" paper is one of a series of papers by UNESCO and provides a survey of mobile learning initiatives in North American schools and school districts. As the abstract states, "The widespread use of mobile technologies around the world represents a significant opportunity in education. While mobile learning – learning with mobile technologies and devices – is still in the early stages of development, many teachers and students in North America are beginning to realize its potential for enhancing teaching and learning. Mobile learning involves more than merely incorporating new technology into current pedagogical strategies; it requires an instructional paradigm shift that promises to fundamentally change the way students learn. The move toward mobile learning is driven by increasingly high demands for student achievement and an understanding of the digital skills students need to compete in the twenty-first century global economy."
