Live Global Education Debate: Mobile Learning for the Masses

Start: Wednesday 17 September 2014 12:06 pm

End: Wednesday 17 September 2014 12:06 pm

Venue: Live Stream

Mobile learning has, again, triggered discussions about the unfulfilled potential of technology in education. With quite different meanings according to contexts, mLearning has recently emerged as a major opportunity to transform school education, bring more learning opportunities at home or even to reach marginalized populations, be that from a geographical or social perspective. In short, one would think that mobile learning is here to stay. However, there is a need to take stock of where we are, particularly drawing on impact evaluation studies and research, throwing light on how to generate realistic expectations and what could be the criteria for successful implementation of mobile learning initiatives.

With mobile learning experts from across the world including David Atchoarena, Director of the Division for Policies and Lifelong Learning Systems at UNESCO and Adrian Godfrey, Director of mLearning Ecosystems, GSMA.
