Abstract

Contemporary mobile learning devices, supported by small programs called Apps, and usually enabled by access to dual wireless environments (3G/4G and Wi-Fi) allow for powerful and authentic “anywhere/anytime” learning. Panelists will share their expertise with mobile devices as learning tools, addressing the following topics: an overview of mobile learning, presentation of various categories of Apps to support learning, present and future educational opportunities. The panel will conclude with a Q&A.
