Mobile Learning for Teachers in Latin America

This paper reviews and compares the most relevant ongoing initiatives on the use of mobile phones to support teachers and improve teaching practices in Latin America. Three major projects were identified that aim to provide in-class support for teachers via mobile phones. The paper analyses these projects in depth to determine key factors for success, sustainability and growth. An additional eighteen initiatives were found that used different mobile technologies, were short-term or small in scale, or focused on learning outside the formal school system. The paper describes each of these projects in brief and compares their most salient features.
