Unesco lança série de publicações sobre "Mobile Learning"
This paper is part of the UNESCO Working Paper Series on Mobile Learning. The Series seeks to better understand how mobile technologies can be used to improve educational access, equity and quality around the world. It comprises fourteen individual papers that will be
published throughout 2012.
The Series is divided into two broad subsets: six papers examine mobile learning initiatives and their policy implications, and six papers examine how mobile technologies can support teachers and improve their practice.
Within the two subsets there are five geographical divisions: Africa and the Middle East, Asia,
Europe, Latin America, and North America. Each subset also contains a ‘Global Themes’ paper that synthesizes central findings from the five regional papers.
Two additional ‘Issues’ papers round out the Series. One paper highlights characteristics
shared by successful mobile learning initiatives and identifies supportive policies. A separate paper discusses how mobile technologies are likely to impact education in the future.
As a whole, the Series provides a current snapshot of mobile learning efforts around the
world. Collectively and individually, the papers consolidate lessons learned in different
regions to provide policy-makers, educators and other stakeholders with a valuable tool for
leveraging mobile technology to enhance learning, both now and in the future.
UNESCO has plans to add additional titles to the Series after 2012. The Organization hopes that these resources will help diverse audiences better understand the educational potential of mobile technologies.
