Mobile Learning

Forward Thinking with Mobile Learning

January 14, 2014

The prospect of mobile devices evolving into the platform of choice for web surfing poses a fresh question for developers and educators.

By using mobile devices – tablets, smart phones and other hand-held technologies, students can learn anywhere and anytime.  Mobile learning is defined as “learning across multiple contexts, through social and content interactions, using personal electronic devices”.

There is a challenge for education developers to create resources for an ever increasing mobile population. Not only are the students mobile, but the teacher too can provide instruction in any location.

It can also be a sharing and collaborative process. Students can get instant feedback and results, with like-minded students able to communicate with each other at the same time.

More and more students own one or more mobile devices with many schools implementing a number of programs which use mobile apps and mobile activities.

We are fully on board with all these new exciting advances in education. We build all our activities to work across all the devices, as well as desktops, laptops and any future technology that may come along.

Achieve Cross-Platform Compatibility

Here at Educade we support the movement towards the vendor-nuetral languages of HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3. We’re happy to work on native apps, but we believe the best way to ensure that an application works across every platform, from desktop web browsers to iPads, is to adopt vendor-nuetralilty.
