4 Reasons Students Prefer Mobile Learning

Share with Friends

In Teaching the iStudent: A Quick Guide to Using Mobile Devices and Social Media in the K-12 Classroom (Corwin, 2014), I contend that we are not far from every student, no matter his or her age, having some kind of Internet-ready mobile device. This puts remarkable power in students’ hands. The sooner teachers embrace mobile learning, the faster education will improve.

What makes this information so important, assuming the statistics and my calculations are correct, is the fact that kids love mobile learning. Imagine students entering the classroom, excited to be there, because they can learn in a way that they enjoy.

The infographic below outlines 4 reasons students prefer learning on mobile devices. As noted earlier, number 1 underscores the high number of students who already use mobile devices. In Teaching the iStudent, I share further statistics that show how the percentage in the infographic is skyrocketing, as more devices are created each year and as unit costs plummet.

Check out the other reasons students prefer learning on mobile devices, and be sure to add your own in the comment section below.
