9 Characteristics Of The Shift To Learning With Tablets


This post is sponsored by Samsung in Education. They asked us to write anything we felt was relevant to mobile learning or learning through tablets. We focused on the shift in instructional planning to accommodate laptops in the classroom.

So many modern trends in learning are based on technology.

Game-based learning, mobile learning, the flipped classroom, blended learning, and more all depend on technology at the core of how they work. But these shifts bring with them other more important trends that challenge the cognitive demand on students, and the requisite instructional design and lesson planning on the part of teachers. Chief among them is the potential for the personalization of learning.

You can’t just add tablets to old learning models and expect success. If anything, this overly-simplified can seem to discredit the performance of learning technology, making future thinking and buy-in even more challenging. Designing instruction around tablets requires some slight shifts in how you view when, why, and how learning happens.
