“Mind over Technology” – The value of content design in “mobile education” - Presented by Supra Manohar, EVP Emantras
The discussion of mobility in education has primarily focused on technology and devices. It is critical to understand that the maturation of the market is driving the need for understanding content design and why it is probably one of the most critical aspects of any mobile learning initiative. Understanding how we learn in specific environments is critical to learning design. Using online content without pedagogical modifications within mobile environments probably does not work. The primary thrust of mobile education must be the design of the content and utilization of technology to deliver this content. This presentation will explore learning design for mobile environments and critical factors that need to be considered for a successful initiative (relative to content).
