Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 21, 8:34 PM

The use of mobile technology has increased, esp. in locations like Africa, and this is changing the way people learn. It is important to note that the mobile technology that is in used is often less "sophisticated and powerful than cell phones and have fewer features." Yet the tiny screen on the cell phone is a window to the world.

This post lists seven people/organizations from around the world who are making a difference.

It then goes on to look at what you can do with mobile learning to make a difference. There are 13 suggestions. Three are below.

* Encourage the use of apps that work on cell phones and basic phones alike.

* Create open, educational resources with a mobile, international  audience in mind.

* Spend more time explaining content than creating it.

Each of the suggestions above are described in more detail as are ten additional suggestions found in the post.

There are obviously many more uses out there for them – but that is a discussion for another post. We’ve mentioned most of these before – in a post from way back when – so I won’t go into too much detail about each individual one, but we’ve added a few notable ones to the list.
