Unesco recognises that mobile devices have massive potential for learning. So what needs to be done?
Chilean academic Miguel Nussbaum puts his finger on a widespread concern about learning with mobile technology: “Everybody is buying tablets and nothing is changing.” And he will kick off the 11th Education Fast Forward (EFF) debate on September 17 (3pm GMT) – “Mobile learning for the masses?”.
This is the first EFF debate as a fully independent organisation (it was created by Promethean with support from Cisco, which continues. It has Unesco as a partner and will feature a range of top international educators, plus two UK educators with significant new books for mobile learning, Professor Angela McFarlane and John Galloway.
