Enabling Agile Learning in Real Time Through Mobile Technology

Sidneyeve Matrix

Queen’s National Scholar

Sidneyeve Matrix teaches
and researches digital trends
in culture, communication,

University, Canada.

W

ith our phones always within arm’s reach, designing
mobile learning opportunities only makes sense. The
higher education classroom is an organic bring-your-own-device
environment. Whether studying online or on campus, students
naturally bring their personal tablets, laptops, and phones along. When we
leverage those digital fluencies, whether using handhelds for live polling,
lecture-tweeting, fact-checking, content sharing, or streaming instructional
content, we enable personalized, agile learning experiences in real time. In
my courses, where more than 1,000 students collaborate to learn about
digital marketing, the most impactful teaching tools are always the social
platforms, where peer-to-peer discussion unfolds. Given the opportunity
to participate via social and mobile technologies, my students regularly far
exceed expectations for contributing, likely because of the convenience
factor. Mobile-optimized learning objects and social-by-design services
such as YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook (as well as native apps) give busy
Gen Y students the opportunity to connect and be productive on the go.
