Pockets of Potential

Study outlining the need for a national strategy for mLearning for schoolchildren

The Joan Ganz Cooney Center has released a study into mLearning in schools. It outlines a suggestion for a national mobile learning strategy for the US and includes suggestions for teacher training to ensure that our teachers are equipped with both knowledge and understanding of mobile technologies and usage so that they can best use them to teach our children.

The study is a must read for anyone in the USA who has an interest in mobile learning, whether as a teacher, a parent or developer of training solutions. Click here to read the Pockets of Potential study.
