Turning On Mobile Learning: Global Themes

Today there are over 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO would like to better understand their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce.

This paper synthesizes findings running across the five regional ‘Turning on Mobile Learning’ papers. By identifying global trends and analysing their implications, it reveals important lessons for policy-makers and other stakeholders seeking to better leverage mobile devices for education.
