ABSTRACT

MOTILL, which stands for "Mobile Technologies in Lifelong Learning: best practices", was a four-partner project funded by the European Commission within the National Lifelong Learning Strategies Programme, from March 2009 to February 2010. The project’s aim was to bring together evidence on the impact of mobile technologies on lifelong learning by considering recent mobile learning research and practice in light of a developing learning ethic characterized by increasing self-directedness and informality, and marked by states of transition.

Although the education community has highlighted that mobile learning is likely to be an important part of future lifelong learning strategies (including distance education), national policies have yet to take significant steps toward integrating lifelong learning and mobile technologies. In order to engage with policy-makers, the project team selected, reviewed and tagged over 50 publications to create the Scientific Annotated Review Database (SARD) which is now a free resource available to anyone with an interest in this area. We also developed an Evaluation Grid and contributed to the Best Practices Collection (BPC), a set of 12 case studies from the partner countries focusing on best practices in Management, Pedagogy, Policy, and Ethics. We discuss the work of the project, its outputs, and the challenges surrounding attempts to influence education policy in the UK.
