Toward a mobile learning strategy

Toward a mobile learning strategy | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

Based on the JISC Mobile Learning InfoKit, with my additional points based on recent developments in mobile learning as well as on our own observations through the Places mobile learning evaluation...

 

... In order for a school or university to strategically implement mobile learning, it must, as an institution:
> put learners at the centre
> ensure staff are on board and kept in the communication and policy loop
> consider cultural implications of employing technology often used for leisure
> consider cultural and other implications of expecting students to use their own equipment in their learning (in BYOD initiatives)
> consider cost including institutional wireless capacity, charging, and furniture in learning spaces
> plan for sustainability" from Source: http://placesmobile.wordpress.com/

This blog post offers a good abstract for the JISC Mobile Learning Infokit. It points to the JISC content as well as other pointers on related works.
