What Mobile Learning and Working Remotely Can Learn from Each Other
Depryck, Koen
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at International Conference on Mobile Learning 2014 (10th, Madrid, Spain, Feb 28-Mar 2, 2014)
To a large extent, developments in the workplace and in (especially formal) education still take place independently from each other, regardless of a strong (market driven) demand to bring both closer to each other. The divide is especially visible when looking at developments towards e-working (telecommuting, …) on the one hand and developments towards and in e-learning (online learning, mobile learning, …) on the other. Nevertheless, mobile learning and working remotely (telecommuting) share a number of concerns as well as a potential for a paradigmatic shift in what we expect as their output. In this reflection paper we explore how experiences and good practices from both domains can be put to work in an overall move towards a more innovative society. The key, it turns out, is not an either/or but a flexible organization in which a blend of face-to-face and distance interact in a truly mobile context in which learning environments are designed as knowledge workplaces and workplaces as learning environments.
