Event organised in partnership between Designing for Digital Learners (D4DL) Research Group, UWE Bristol, and London Mobile Learning Group

 

Background to the event

With their increasing use for everything from health apps, social media and downloading films to booking holidays and shopping, mobile devices are becoming an integral part of modern society. The focus of the workshop is to highlight and debate the issues currently surrounding the design and use of mobile technologies in formal learning and learning in informal situations. The interactive sessions will encourage debate about the use of mobile devices in the school classroom, Further and Higher Education and the use of these mobile technologies for learning in informal environments such as museums and the workplace.

Aim of event

  • Propose and discuss reference points that can help build sustainable mobile learning scenarios
  • Share and analyse emerging mobile learning scenarios
