Mobile Learning Evolves from Initiative to Ecosystem

Written by Berlin Fang

The Adams Center’s Berlin Fang published the following article with WISE Ed Review, an online platform hosted by World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) to share thoughts in educational innovation.

“On November 6, 2014, I organized a meet-up during the 2014 World Innovation Forum for Education. The audience was small, but diverse and active. Participants came from Egypt, France, Afghanistan, Palestine, Lebanon, China, as well as Qatar, where the summit was held. A variety of mobile phones were used by participants of this session, including iPhones that are often seen in the US, Huawei’s Mate used in China, as well as some “dumb” phones used temporarily during travel.

Curious what people do with their phones, I asked everyone to recommend one favorite mobile app. Participants from France and Canada both recommended Uber, an app to help get a taxi. A participant from Egypt said she used whatsapp. Professor Jiao Jianli from China recommended Zite, an app to gather and curate mobile content. A participant from China recommended a Chinese app that provides recipes and tutorials for cooking Chinese food. Almost all of us use some kind of social media tools such as Wechat, Twitter, or Instagram. Of course, Skype is everyone’s favorite app as well.

2012-2013 Mobile Learning Report Cover2012-2013 Mobile Learning Report

In 2010 ACU received a $1.8 million grant from AT&T to enhance mobile learning on campus. Transform may be a better word, because the impact of the project has been nothing short of remarkable. What you will see in the following pages reflects many of the lessons learned from the three-year university partnership with AT&T. You will see how technology has begun to permeate the learning experiences of students and how some of the university’s most innovative faculty members have employed new technologies to increase student engagement. Most importantly, you will see some of the ways these faculty have made a difference in students’ lives.

The 2012-2013 Mobile Learning Report is available to download on your iPad with iBooks or on your computer with iTunes.
