Content is the King of Mobile Learning

Pedro A. Tamayo
Lecturer in Economics

Pedro Tamayo is a lecturer in
Economics at UNED (a Spanish
distance university). He likes
teaching online, employing
new technologies, gadgets,
mobile learning, instructional
design, typography, and making
learning fun.

E

veryday, when I use public transportation to go to work, it
amazes me what I see: Most travelers are focused on their
smartphone, eBook readers, or tablet. They are consuming
content on a truly mobile device (not on laptops)—content that
may be on their devices or from the cloud. When I get to my office at the
university, I still see paper books, computers, printers, copiers, hard disks
. . . and that’s when I realize that what is happening outside the university,
on public transportation and in cafés, is what we should be preparing
ourselves for: the intersection of content, mobile, and the cloud. Content
is the king of mobile learning, regardless of whether that content comes
to us through apps, eBooks, videos, or social networks. Today, we face the
biggest and most exciting opportunities to enrich teaching and learning,
available to all and for all. We will not have to wait decades to verify this
fact: Just ride the subway or the bus, go to the cafés, or give a tablet to a
child in your family. You’ll see it.

Key Lessons
1

People are consuming
content on truly mobile
devices, not laptops.

2

We must prepare ourselves
for the intersection of
content, mobile, and the
cloud.

“Content is the king of mobile learning, regardless of whether that content comes to us through
apps, eBooks, videos, or social networks.”
