M

obile in education? Well, my favorite use is probably not
what you would expect. What excites me is the way mobile
allows us to augment and go beyond education through mobile
performance support. Yes, mobile performance support.

Sure, you can take a class on nutrition and get smarter about it. But then
you have to make good decisions in the supermarket. Fooducate is an
example of an app that helps turn nutrition lessons into decisions.
Another example is provided by apps that use location to leverage
moments in Balboa Park in San Diego or at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Then there’s wine. I’ve taken classes in person and online. But it’s the apps
that help me transfer those lessons into the right wine for the meal or
moment.

Key Lessons
1

Users have to be able
to turn lessons into
decisions.

2

Mobile performance
supports helps us be more
knowledgeable about
everything.

“It’s just not possible to be knowledgeable about
everything. Mobile performance support helps us
act as if we were”
It’s just not possible to be knowledgeable about everything. Mobile
