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. In March, 2018 IBB sponsored an extended report that summarizes knowledge to date, provides examples that illustrate trends, and suggests future directions for investment. A newly updated version is now (March, 2019) available at Mobile Learning in Low Resource Countries.
We welcome your comments, suggestions for resources, and ideas for the next chapter of mobile learning.
