21st-century learning experience
For older students, flexible, accessible mobile learning supports the development of their independence, ownership of their progress and time management of their studies. Students expect a 21st-century learning experience ¾ one that’s convenient, is tailored to their needs and saves them time, which is exactly what mobile learning does. Not providing such an experience can become a barrier to successful learning.
Mobile can also help parents connect with teachers and stay up to date with their child’s progress at school. Digital portfolios, enabled through a Virtual Learning Environment and accessible at home on mobile devices, help bridge the school-home divide, giving parents insight into schoolwork, class activity, pending assignments and their child’s progress. It also ensures they are aware of topics being discussed in the classroom, giving them the opportunity to bring the conversation into the home.

The integration of mobile technologies into the learning experience supports new and exciting ways of delivering engaging content; it also helps build the digital skills young people need beyond education
