Turning on Mobile Learning in Latin America
UNESCO Working Paper Series
While the use of mobile phones is growing rapidly in Latin America, mobile learning initiarives are still in early stages of development. Most programmes are pilot projects, driven by non-profit organizations or universities, that typically target small groups and focus on particular and often local needs. This review examined seventeen initiatives and found that they typically fit into one of five profiles: experimental programmes launched at the university level; pilot programmes for children and adolescents in vulnerable populations; literacy programmes for youth and adults; programmes seeking to improve educational management; and programmes addressing specific issues such as assessment and test preparation, especially preparation for university entrance examinations.
