Advancing Mobile Learning in Formal and Informal Settings via Mobile App Technology: Where to from Here, and How?
Khaddage, Ferial; Müller, Wolfgang; Flintoff, Kim
Educational Technology & Society, v19 n3 p16-26 2016
In this paper a brief review of the framework that addressed mobile learning implementation challenges (pedagogical, technological, policy and research) that was developed by Khaddage et al. (2015) is briefly discussed, followed by possible solutions that could be deployed to tackle those challenges. A unique approach is then applied to bridge the gap between formal and informal learning via MAT (Mobile Applications Technology). This approach is based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) as subjects to be taught and the specific skills needed to achieve the RLOC (Required Learning Outcome) that can support student learning informally. This specific approach shows HOW to advance mobile learning in formal and informal settings.
