Where are they?
In many reads, e.g., edtech for higher ed type magazines and journal, there is little mention about designing courses or developing strategies that use the power of mobile technologies. Specifically, it is rare to read anything about using mobile phones for more than sending group or individual messages regarding the online or on ground course. There is a need to look at pedagogical use of mobile devices, not just as devices for social interaction or messaging (although these are also important for learning.) Some specifics to be examined here:
- The pedagogical use should include the cognitive, physical, psychological, personal and cultural factors and the of all to learning principles.
- ISTE standards
- UNESCO recommendations
- Adoption in other countries
- Rubrics and other evaluation methods
- Learning Objects for mobile learning
- Peer learning with mobile devices
- Combining apps with learning, camera, measurement, audio,
- Active engagement of learners using the apps
Also, where should higher education be headed?
