Mobile connectivity opens up new ways of teaching and learning that improve performance and results, while opening up new markets for mobile operators. Mobile connectivity enables access to up-to-date materials, improves collaboration and strengthens learner engagement.
In response to this opportunity, the GSMA’s mEducation initiative aims to accelerate the adoption of mobile education solutions, particularly mobile-enabled portable devices, such as e-Readers and tablets, in mainstream education settings. This global initiative seeks to understand the landscape and address the barriers and opportunities in this emerging market.
The GSMA has published a joint report with McKinsey & Company, Transforming learning through mEducation, which shows that mEducation will be a $70 Billion market opportunity by 2020.
While education systems are country or even local authority-specific, we believe that globally coordinated activity drawing on common experience and sharing best practices will be vital to understand and act upon the mobile education opportunity.
