7 Learning Models for Mobile Learning

Mobile learning enables teachers to address varied learners using a pedagogy which best suits the learning requirement and the student’s need. Below are some common educational pedagogies that mobile learning easily adapts to, to make education more effective.

Assessment
A traditional method of measuring comprehension, educators traditionally create pre- and post-assessments for students and tailor learning to the specific needs of the students. Mobile learning can be used to create similar assessments which measure comprehension, and benchmarking.

Remedial
Additional exercises are often required to reinforce some lessons to students who fare poorly. By providing access to visual guides, repetitive exercises and practical examples
Mobile learning can help provide remedial learning inputs to students who need it.

Test Prep
Mobile learning can be easily adapted to design multiple choice tests and fill-in-the-blank answers. By constant review of test prep material, students can ensure better preparation for exams.

Index
Mobile learning being accessible anywhere, anytime, is gainfully used in providing easy access to lists, indices and how-to guides. These serve as an excellent quick reference for learners to get immediate answers to questions pertaining to their subjects.

Guides
Most educative materials comes with some memorization requirements be it formulae, dates, or diagrams. Creating guides which can be revised separately before an exam, or reviewed in conjunction with learning material can enable better comprehension.

Collaborative
Mobile learning can help students exchange and share information using technology. But facilitating this, learning can be through sharing between peer groups, experts, and mentors.

Supplemental
Supportive material inputs like examples, and case studies which supplement the main chapter can be introduced for further reading and better understanding of the key subject. Mobile learning delivers content in small nuggets making it ideal for supplementary content delivery.

    Great blog guys.

    I see Sales, Field Services and “modal” engagement as the application approach to mobile.

    Some uses will be demanded by the “role” i.e. sales and field service.

    Some uses will be demanded because users expect ALL of their work to be done via their mobile.

    If I can help in any way, do let me know.
