  • Mobile learning story board week 8 & 9

    1. 1. Mobile Learning
    2. 2. Need <ul><li>The students of today are technologically savvy and in need of an education that is individualized and geared toward that technology. Through Mobile Learning, students will be able to experience learning through listening, reading, predicting, reflecting and responding. This entire experience can take place via a smart phone. Therefore, learning can take place anywhere at any time, but most importantly, all the time. </li></ul>
