REAL STRATEGIES FOR MOBILE LEARNING
Presented April 19, 2012
ACHIEVING BALANCE, ACHIEVING POTENTIAL
Representing the user Representing the business
QUESTION WHY ARE WE HERE?
I'm interested in how people use mobile for learning.
I want real practical ways to implement it effectively.
The Triumvirate of learner, content, and environment.
The just-in-time performance environment of the future.
The mobile devices offer rich new functionality we can use…
…but so what?
There’s no value in converting over the old stuff into the new technology.
Mobile learning needs a mobile methodology.
Technology in itself won’t deliver change
So what are you going to do with it?
QUESTIONS CURRENT STATE
What's the state of play in your organization?
1. I've got a vision but I can't get funding
2. They want this yesterday but not sure what 'it' is
3. We want it but our technology is not ready
4. We worry about deployment/security
5. We have the green light and are ready to go!
Mobile learning also includes more challenges; development tools,
interfaces, content design, security, archetypes, LMS…
Having an idea is not enough. It must be executed superbly.
“One does not simply develop mobile learning… “
Where do you think your organization could get
the most benefit from mobile learning?
1. On-the-job performance support material
2. Product information at your finger tips
3. 'Mandatory' courses and/or assessments
4. Coaching, guidance, and best practices
5. Essential skills training
Some things we agree about:
Don’t focus on what the employee needs to know.
Focus on what you want them to do.
Understanding the subject matter is no longer enough.
You must understand the technology and environment.
It’s a whole new model and a brave new world.
Enough talk …
Let’s look at some examples of where mobile learning is working…
…and where mobile devices are changing the bottom line.
