Prof. Marcelo Milrad:
An Evolutionary Perspective on Mobile Learning: From Research and Pilot oriented to Scalable and Sustainable


Zusammenfassung der Sitzung

The research field of mobile learning has gained much attention in the last 15 years. Since the late 90’s, a substantial number of research projects on mobile learning have been conducted in both formal and informal learning settings. The analysis of the research literature in this field indicate that much of the global research efforts have concentrated on the design and development of a wide range of technological solutions to support learning about a particular subject matter. The outcomes of these research activities have contributed to a refined conceptualization of learning with mobile technologies in schools, museums and in field trips.

In this talk Prof.  Marcelo Milrad from Linnaeus University in Sweden will address and discuss those aspects related to innovation and sustainability in mobile learning. He will first introduce this research field in terms of perspectives and challenges in order to understand why it matters to study the sustainability of innovations in schools. Thereafter, Prof. Milrad will turn the focus to a couple of his on-going research projects in order to provide a critical analysis on the barriers and constraints experienced by both researchers and teachers while integrating mobile devices and applications in elementary,  secondary schools and university settings. Towards the end, the speaker will discuss factors, stakeholders and lines of action identified when attempting to introduce and sustain innovative educational practices in Swedish schools.
