Lesson Ideas for Mobile Learning
A few years ago, mobile learning may have seemed only to cater to a particular audience. However, it’s almost impossible to speak about education now without mentioning the prospect of “learning on the go.”
Sure enough, mobile learning has seen a massive boom in popularity over this past year, primarily due to the global pandemic and numerous technological advancements since mobile learning was first conceived. All of a sudden, mobile learning not only seems viable, but it is almost essential in maintaining a high standard of education.
The sheer dedication of educators around the world is mainly responsible for this. If you’d like to join their ranks, be sure to check out and sign up for Pedagogue to get connected right now. If you need some extra motivation, check this out, but read on to find out some of the best lesson ideas for mobile learning before you go.
Idea #1 – Brainstorming
In a typical classroom environment, you would brainstorm your ideas on a whiteboard when solving a problem with your students. But just because you’re on the go doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do that. Google is perfect for this, and it has some classroom-specific features of its own.
There’s no shame in searching for a solution or getting your students to suggest what to search. Also, you can share all of this with them. You’ve got to love the power of the Internet.
Idea #2 – Embrace the Mini-Lesson
YouTube! This site is packed full of content. While not all of it is helpful (quite the opposite, in some cases), there are plenty of videos that you can reference and share with your students to convey an idea and aid their understanding of certain concepts.
Idea #3 – Group Projects
Thanks to Cloud storage, accessing the same document from anywhere in the world has never been easier, and it’s something you should take advantage of. Have your students collaborate on a presentation, essay, or other documents that they can then share with both you and the other members of their class.
Handing in assignments has never been easier. We recommend using Google Docs and its related apps in tandem with a work-board app like Trello. This will help keep everyone organized and on the same page at all times.
Mobile learning does not have to be a bad thing, as long as you’re willing to put in a little more time to readjust your teaching approach. You aren’t alone, though. There’s an entire community of like-minded educators just waiting to get connected with you. All you need to do is sign up for Pedagogue, and you’re all set.
