The London Mobile Learning Group (www.londonmobilelearning.net) will be drawing on the findings from their international research to offer some suggestions for Achievement for All practitioners supporting at-risk learners. The session will outline the key principles of the socio-cultural ecology of mobile learning with particular emphasis on at-risk learners and with reference to specific mobile learning projects. The topics under discussion will be:

  • different ways of integrating mobile media into schools in constructive learning contexts
  • bridging the gap between the use of technologies in school and in everyday life
  • harnessing the power of mobile technologies in promoting learning in informal contexts.

Invited experts who will introduce the themes will include Professors Norbert Pachler and Ben Bachmair, Institute of Education, University of London and John Cook, London Metropolitan University.
