Mobile learning is the “exploitation of ubiquitous handheld hardware, wireless networking and mobile telephony to facilitate, support, enhance and extend the reach of teaching and learning” (MoLeNET, quoted in Jisc infoNet’s Mobile Learning infoKit). This meta-workshop brings together Jisc’s advisory services to deliver a wide-ranging guide to best practice and pitfall avoidance to allow learners to work with the gadgets and platforms most suitable and accessible for their context.
Whether the context is learners using their own devices (that smartphone attached to their hand, that birthday present tablet), or, in some cases, institution-provided devices, there are technical, pedagogic and organisational challenges to providing the learners with a high-quality, seamless experience. This workshop will introduce the wide range of practical, relevant Jisc resources, services and tools enabling the delivery of versatile, expectation-meeting, fit for purpose mobile learning.
This session will introduce the relevant resources, distil the key issues, and outline best practice in respect to mobile learning. Jisc’s expertise has already considered issues in relation to strategy and relationship to institutional mission, pedagogy, curriculum design and delivery, learning resource issues, technical implementation, legal issues, accessibility and inclusion, and training needs.
