How To Be An Advocate For Mobile Learning

SUREN on February 22, 2014

Its a given the personal mobile devices are ubiquitous and pervasive today. Except in schools, that is. The Living and Learning with Mobile Devices survey reveals that 72% of parents say their child's school bans the use of family-owned mobile devices.
According to the SpeakUp survey, 55% of teachers, and an equal proportion of principals and administrators feel the biggest obstacle to the use of technology in schools is the lack of enough tablets, computers or a budget to purchase them. But surprisingly enough, 62% of parents are willing to purchase a device if used for learning purposes! Obviously, there is a meeting of minds here. What this means is that you, the parent, are the biggest untapped resource who can move the needle on mobile learning!

Get in touch with your child's teacher, principal, and school administrators today! Talk to them aboutthese findings and what you can do to help! You may accomplish more than you think is possible.
