According to Innovate+Educate, mobile learning (m-learning) is no longer exploding onto the scene or the hot new trend, itâ€™s a $1.4 billion industry with serious implications for teaching and learning. As mobile learning settles in as another instructional tool to deepen the student-teacher relationship, educators and advocates have the opportunity to contribute to the development of m-learning apps, infusing technological development with the expertise of years of instructional and institutional knowledge.
Launched in conjunction with the Verizon Foundation, Innovate+Educateâ€™s Mobile Learning Partnership (MLP) initiative is designed to â€œconnect, partner and facilitate communication between educators, mobile app developers and technology enthusiasts for the advancement of mobile learning in the classroom.â€ With new m-learning apps springing up all the time, the MLP initiative is offering a unique opportunity for professionals to provide input into what teachers and students need most out of a m-learning app. You can contribute to the conversation here.
