[2] Mind Over Technology – The Value Of Content Design In Mobile Education
/  Presented by Supra Manohar /  EVP Emantras

The discussion of mobility in education has primarily focused on technology
and devices. It is critical to understand that the maturation of the market
is driving the need for understanding content design and why it is probably
one of the most critical aspects of any mobile learning initiative.
Understanding how we learn in specific environments is critical to learning
design. Using online content without pedagogical modifications within mobile
environments probably does not work. The primary thrust of mobile education
must be the design of the content and utilization of technology to deliver
this content. This presentation will explore learning design for mobile
environments and critical factors that need to be considered for a
successful initiative (relative to content).
