Mobile Learning on the GO!

Mobile Learning Research

Researchers hypothesized that mobile technologies will have a huge impact on learning; they made the following predictions based on emerging trends:

 

  • Learning will center on the individual learner's environment rather than the classroom.
  • Learning will involve learners making meaningful connections to resources and other people.
  • The ability to instantly publish their observations and reflections as digital media will empower learners to become investigators of their own environments.
  • Distributed learning collaborations and mobile team learning opportunities will be greatly enhanced.
