The introduction of new technologies has continuously impacted personal and professional learning. Individuals have used desktops, smartphones, tablets, and other technologies to enhance the way they learn, and organizations have struggled to keep up with the changes. Organizations desiring to make the move to mLearning often hit roadblocks, and find it challenging to find a place and meaning for mobile learning.

This session will challenge the notion that mobile learning is a separate strategy and you will look at mobile as a single piece in a greater puzzle. You will discover the importance of NOT having a mobile learning strategy, and understand the critical difference in having an organizational learning strategy in which mLearning fits. You will explore the behavior of typical learners, including how they consume and share knowledge on their way to understanding and competency development, and how that affects your overall strategy.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to refine your current understanding of mLearning
  • How to recognize the influences of mobile learning
  • How people learn in today’s workplace
  • The needs of today’s worker
  • How to position mobile learning to meet your overall learning strategy
