Krishnamurthi, Murali; Richter, Stephanie
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Mobile Learning (Lisbon, Portugal, Mar 14-16, 2013)
The recruitment and retention of more students, especially women and minority students, into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs is a critical need in technologically advanced countries like the U.S. as there is expected to be shortage of qualified STEM graduates in the future. Educators have to find new ways to interest and engage current generation of students in STEM programs, and the recent advancements in mobile teaching and learning offer promise in this regard. In this paper, the unique needs that STEM courses pose with respect to teaching and learning are identified, and the opportunities that mobile teaching and learning offer to meet those needs are discussed. Mobile teaching and learning is proposed as a solution for recruiting and retaining students in STEM programs and meeting the needs of technologically advanced countries such as the U.S. [For the full proceedings, see ED562140.]
