UNESCO Working Paper Series on Mobile Learning

Today there are over 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce. This Working Paper Series scans the globe to illuminate the ways in which mobile technologies can be used to support the United Nations Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and make learning more accessible, equitable, personalized and flexible for students everywhere.

Learning Without Frontiers

Learning Without Frontiers (LWF) was founded by Graham Brown-Martin in 2004. We bring together international thought leaders, policy makers and innovators from the education, technology and entertainment sectors to connect and engage in a new dialogue about the future of learning. Recognising how affordable, disruptive technologies challenge traditional approaches to industrial scale education the LWF community has taken a globally respected position of leadership in the use of mobile, gaming, social media, open source and other digital platforms to support learning. The discussion, however, is not about technology but how society is changing in the digital age and how our approach and platforms for learning reflect, embrace and respond to those changes.
