Mobile Teaching Versus Mobile Learning
- Higher education historically has focused on instructors teaching rather than students learning, an ineffective approach that could seriously hamper the promise of mobile learning.
- Successful student learning emerges from active engagement, connection to the students’ prior knowledge, and simulation of real world experiences — all facilitated by engaging learners’ senses through multimedia.
- Higher education should stop thinking about these powerful mobile multimedia devices as only consumption devices — to live up to the promise of mobile learning, students should use them as production devices.
