The Future of Mobile Learning | EDUCAUSE

The Future of Mobile Learning | EDUCAUSE | How to create an ebook for academic purposes | Scoop.it

This bulletin provides an overview of the current state of mobile learning in higher education, speculates on future directions, and suggests questions that educators might ask of themselves and their institutions in preparation for the onset of mobile education. Ignoring mobile learning is not an option when it has already begun to show a strong potential to disrupt existing pedagogical infrastructure, including that of online education. It is up to those in higher education to adapt this freewheeling trend to best serve the core mission of educating students.

Top 10 Things NOT to do in a 1:1 iPad Initiative

Top 10 Things NOT to do in a 1:1 iPad Initiative | How to create an ebook for academic purposes | Scoop.it
Part of the benefit of jumping forward with a 1:1 iPad deployment like we have tried is that we get the opportunity to impart knowledge to other districts looking to do a similar initiative. While that might not seem like a benefit, it actually also means we can make some mistakes because there is not a long history of this type of deployment in the world.
