The Possibilities of Mobile: Openly Networked, Inquiry-Based Learning with MobileEd.org

About this Series

In what ways will mobile act as an on-ramp to diverse learning experiences? What is place-based learning and what does it look like in practice--now and in the future? How will a mobile device connect locations, experiences and communities? This month of discussions on Connected Learning TV explores how mobile opens up both formal and informal learning opportunities--classrooms, libraries, museums, parks, cities, towns--through games, STEM inquiry, and citizen science and civics initiatives. We will balance visionary thinking and pragmatic experience to understand how mobile devices might reacquaint us with inquiry and learning in a connected world.

Partners

In addition to helping schools integrate mobiles with curriculum, MobileEd also explores mobile, inquiry-based learning in informal contexts.
metaLAB is a research and teaching unit at Harvard University dedicated to exploring and expanding the frontiers of networked culture in the arts and humanities.
OpenPath enables place-based learning by using location-based videochat sessions to connect learners to events at museums, libraries, parks, makerspaces, and more.
