Mobile Learning in Low Resource Countries:
Efforts to improve literacy and learning in low-resource countries with mobile devices have long been greeted with great fanfare. After decades of investment and hype, where do we stand? What have we learned? What has worked? Why? What hasn’t?
The prospect—even inevitability—of classrooms becoming mobile-dependent mandates that we learn from past experiences. IBB has sponsored an extended report, Mobile Learning in Low Resource Countries, which summarizes knowledge to date, provides examples that illustrate trends, and suggests future directions for investment.
We welcome your comments, suggestions for resources, and ideas for the next chapter of mobile learning.
