Mobile Learning : Effective Learning on
While the mobile phone is the most

The e-learning Action Line meeting will
build on the prior discussion of the
High-Level Panel with a particular focus
on mobile or m-learning. It will also be
a continuation of the 2008 low-cost ICT
Many educational mobile learning uses
have been explored: from low-cost mass
learning opportunities through SMS, to
edutainment, to data gathering (surveys,
exams, questionnaires) to administrative
and learning support, with very
different mobile devices.
The session will combine a mix of
presentation and discussion in the usual
multistakeholder and open setting.
UNESCO’s contact for this session is
