It was a fun and dynamic session, which seemed to catch the right mix of theory, practise and vision. See my presentation, below:
The session was focussed on some practical lessons from the field (the 3 of us are major m-learning veterans!). My key themes were:
Mobile is NOW, and personal - when your learners are already mobile web users, and smartphones are already mainstream … it is pointless debating whether m-learning is good or not. It is already here. We just need to get better at harnessing it!
One size does not fit all – there isn't only one approach. You need to plan your mobile learning around YOUR learners, YOUR scenario. YOUR domain area.
Learner centred design – It is the learner’s own phone. You need to design your learning around their context, and their needs.
Standards decrease risk, and increase resilience – Where ever possible, make sure your content. Your data. The divide between different sections of your platform communicate with open, standard formats.
