EFF11: Mobile learning for the Masses?

September 17, 2014

Mobile learning has triggered again the discussions about the unfulfilled potential of technology in education. With quite different meanings according to contexts, m-learning 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 m-learning initiatives.

Education Fast Forward 11 was opened by Prof. Miguel Nussbaum and was moderated by education expert Gavin Dykes. Gavin welcomed our guest speakers, specially invited guests and fellows as well as twitter followers from around the world to the debate.
