"A good friend of mine, Mary Fraizer, is the Tech Integration Specialist in the Buhler School District.
The Buhler School District is implementing iPads fast & furiously. Mary created this absolutely wonderful resource to help her teachers. I thought it might be useful to many of you, feel free to share the link with anyone you think would benefit.
Today’s connected Learners interact in an ecosystem of screens. So for us in the Learning Industry, it should not be just about designing great isolated learning experiences that may only be consumed on desktops and iPads, it’s also about developing a multiscreen strategy that will make our content accessible anywhere, especially as Learners acquire more devices and begin expecting that their ‘learning’ follows them as they shift between devices.
Los docentes y los padres consideramos a menudo que el móvil es más un obstáculo que una oportunidad para el aprendizaje. Sin embargo, en vez de recurrir a la típica actitud represora, podemos convertir su uso en una experiencia educativa, ya sea para reflexionar acerca de su uso responsable como para utilizarlo como una herramienta más dentro del aula. No olvidemos que los alumnos tienen a mano un dispositivo multimedia, con cámara de fotos, cámara de vídeo, grabadora de sonido con reproductor de audio, además de conexión inalámbrica a Internet. Todo esto hace del móvil una herramienta privilegiada y a mano.
The unique aspects of the mobile learning context present advantages and challenges that must be considered when developing an effective set of instructional design principles for guiding mobile content development. Understanding the differences between the mobile learning context and other learning contexts can offer significant advantages to instructors and learners.
"A new study conducted by TRU provides a body of research which supports the idea that students use cell phones to learn, and also that schools are not acknowledging or supporting them fully, yet. This research supports the work of innovative educators who are guiding today’s generation text and will help in the effort of getting more schools to stop fighting and start embracing student use of mobile devices for learning in school. Rather than banning, the study highlights the fact that if we meet children where they are we can leverage their use of mobile devices for powerful learning."

This paper reports on the current challenges the professional sector faces when going mobile. The report discusses the role of mobile devices in the workforce and addresses challenges like compatibility, security and training. It also provides a comprehensive review of the mobile landscape, and reviews current best practices in mobile learning.
The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning (www.irrodl.org) is a refereed e-journal that aims to advance research, theory and best practice in open and distance education research.
The unprecedented uptake of mobile devices, in particular mobile phones, in both developed and developing countries opens up new possibilities for increasing education access, equity and quality. Mobile learning, a growing field of ICT in education, has the potential to significantly impact the delivery of education. However, an enabling policy environment is needed to fully realize this potential. UNESCO’s research has revealed a dearth of policies related to mobile learning. To address this gap UNESCO, in broad consultation with relevant stakeholders, will develop a set of guidelines to help national government policy makers and educators create environments that enable the safe, affordable and sustainable use of mobile technologies for education.
A workshop with government officials, specialists from UNESCO and other international NGOs, industry partners, academia, NGOs in education and independent education consultants has already been held to discuss the first version of the guidelines, the result of which is captured in the second version for review. In order for UNESCO to create mobile learning policy guidelines that are practical, informative and balanced, it is seeking input from the public.
