Learning in the 21st Century: Taking It Mobile
This report looks at mobile learning through the eyes of students and the Mobile Learning Explorer teachers and administrators who use and are supportive of the use of mobile devices for learning. This group of educators, a subset of the national data, has positive experiences using mobile devices in both their personal and professional lives. In fact, the Mobile Learning Explorer administrators are twice as likely to have a smartphone, and four times more likely to have a netbook than their peers. This growing familiarity is likely prompting these educators to think differently about the value and potential of mobile learning in the instructional environment.
