Mobile Learning Publications
UNESCO Mobile Learning Publications Today there are over six billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce. This Working Paper Series scans the globe to illuminate the ways in which mobile technologies can be used to support the United Nations Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and make learning more accessible, equitable, personalized and flexible for students everywhere.

ITEA's Technology for All Americans Project Technological Literacy Standards Briefings "Promoting Technological Literacy for All" ITEA has prepared a new set of ten videos that do a great job of explaining the ITEEA Standards for Technological Literacy (STL). Advancing Excellence in Technological Literacy (AETL), the four Addenda publications to STL and AETL, and other topics relevant to the standards. These are called the Technological Standards Briefings. Click here for the Technological Literacy Standards Briefings videos.

Have your say: guidelines for writers and contributors | Global Development Professionals Network | Guardian Professional It is not wrong to assume that most development professionals are passionate about their work. Many are also good writers. But for those who need a little help to communicate their passion clearly in writing, this guide may be helpful. Practically, our content is usually about 800 words long. How to develop your story First, decide what you want to write about (eg: aid flows from the US). You may have a rough idea (American aid isn't having the impact it should have – why?). Try to put that in one line (why US aid is not reaching the people who need it most). Then, put down the points that you want to discuss or highlight (historical bias, corrupt leaders in country, bureaucracy, lack of supervision and follow up, poorly targeted interventions etc). Next, back up those points with links to evidence – numbers, statistics, past evidence or history, case studies or opinions – your own opinion, other opinions, those of your peers or people related to the topic. Keep it simple 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Technology and Young Children Key Messages When used intentionally and appropriately, technology and interactive media are effective tools to support learning and development. Intentional use requires early childhood teachers and administrators to have information and resources regarding the nature of these tools and the implications of their use with children. Limitations on the use of technology and media are important. Special considerations must be given to the use of technology with infants and toddlers. Attention to digital citizenship and equitable access is essential.

National Education Technology Plan About the National Educational Technology Plan The U.S. Department of Education released the 2024 National Educational Technology Plan (NETP): A Call to Action for Closing the Digital Access, Design and Use Divides. First released in fulfillment of the 2000 Educate America Act, NETP has been updated multiple times since its original release, most recently in 2016. The Digital Use Divide, addressing opportunities to improve how students use technology to enhance their learning, including dynamic applications of technology to explore, create, and engage in critical analysis of academic content and knowledge; The Digital Design Divide, addressing opportunities for educators to expand their professional learning and build the capacities necessary to design learning experiences enabled by technology; and The Digital Access Divide, addressing opportunities for students and educators to gain equitable access to educational technology, including connectivity, devices, and digital content.

Bringing education to young mothers through mobiles | Global Development Professionals Network | Guardian Professional As we celebrate the International day of the girl today, we should take time to remember that young mothers are still girls, too. We need to do what we can to support them in their educational endeavours — even in means considered to be non-traditional. Mobile learning might be one way we can support young mothers when school interruptions occur due to early pregnancy. Here are some of my thoughts which draw upon the Kenyan context. Schooling and early pregnancy in Kenya With a high rate of early pregnancies among women in Kenya, female children in both primary and secondary school are increasingly being affected. Recently, speaking on education reform, cabinet secretary for education, science and technology in Kenya Jacob Kaimenyi drew attention to the difficulties that girls face when they want to return to school after having a baby. Inappropriate use of mobile devices is a common issue around the world among youth. This content is brought to you by Guardian Professional.

12 Principles Of Mobile Learning 12 Principles Of Mobile Learning by Terry Heick Ed note: This post has been updated and republished from a 2012 post Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization. As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. For 2016, the focus is on a variety of challenges, from how learners access content to how the idea of a “curriculum” is defined. It is only within these communities that the native context of each learner can be fully understood. 1. A mobile learning environment is about access to content, peers, experts, portfolio artifacts, credible sources, and previous thinking on relevant topics. 2. As mobile learning is a blend of the digital and physical, diverse metrics (i.e., measures) of understanding and “performance of knowledge” will be available. 3. The cloud is the enabler of “smart” mobility. 4. Transparency is the natural byproduct of connectivity, mobility, and collaboration. 5. 6. 7. 8. With mobility comes diversity. 9.

Mobile technology is changing the way we live and it is beginning to change the way we learn. UNESCO is working to help governments and individuals use mobile devices to advance Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and, in general, make learning more accessible, equitable and flexible for students everywhere. What is mobile learning? Mobile learning involves the use of mobile technology, either alone or in combination with other information and communication technology (ICT), to enable learning anytime and anywhere.

Measuring the Information Society The MIS report, which has been published annually since 2009, features key ICT data and benchmarking tools to measure the information society, including the ICT Development Index (IDI). The IDI captures the level of ICT developments in 157 economies worldwide and compares progress made during the last year. The MIS 2013 also presents the first comprehensive mobile-broadband price data set for almost 130 economies. It features a new model and data to measure the world's digital native population - those young people who were born into the digital age - and a quantitative overview of digital TV broadcasting trends. The 5th edition of the ITU Measuring the Information Society (MIS) report was launched on 7 October 2013, at ITU headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland. *Annex 4 features the statistical tables of prices used to compute the ICT Price Basket.
