Mobile Devices and 21st Century Skills: Part 2 – Knowledge Construction

The Mobile Learner

In the first post of this series on mobile devices and 21st century skills, I focused in the use of mobile devices in developing communication skills. We move now to a discussion in the use if mobile devices and knowledge construction. Teaching was often about information dissemination and the ‘just in case’ teaching philosophy prevailed (let us teach X and Y just in case student need to know it in the future). Similar to what is stated above, mobile devices can easily support information attainment by allowing students to access information online.

Thoughts on the Current State of Mobile Devices

The Mobile Learner

Only a few short years ago, when mobile devices were still mainly cell phones and music players, the thought of a mobile revolution supplanting the computer revolution seemed distant. What will the immediate future of mobility look like? It is well documented what the strengths and weakness are of each device so I will not discuss them here. The observation I do want to make is that what appears to be guiding the evolution of devices is the propensity toward mobility. Desktop vs. Laptop vs. Netbook vs. Tablet. There is an interesting transition taking place.
