Asking the Right Questions About Mobile Learning

A Principal's Reflections

As of late I have been engaged in a great amount of work either assisting districts and schools as they begin to implement mobile learning ( 1:1, BYOD ) or helping them get their programs on track.

This is a continuation of my short series of blog posts on mobile learning. In previous posts I have argued that mobile learning is increasingly popular as an informal activity, and that personalisation of learning is an important characteristic of smart phone use. We are a now mobile, itinerant society where tethered computing is becoming increasingly anachronistic. Self actuation is all about having control over your own learning.
