Mobile Devices are Changing Education Worldwide

UNESCO held its first-ever Mobile Learning Week to think about and work on how mobile devices can help it achieve its goals of education for everyone. Part of the focus was on how mobile devices could be used for teacher education, especially of teachers who work in the most difficult conditions. Four countries were chosen for focus studies: Mexico, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Senegal.

For some of the problems and challenges of Mobile Learning, see this article by Professor  John Traxler at Edutechdebate.org

Ten UNESCO working papers will be released early this year - stay tuned!
