Recent studies in the neuroscience of emotions reveal that there are connections between cognitive and emotional functions. In other words, training programs are more successful when they take into consideration the relationship between learning and emotions. Effective training and development changes the brain, and mobile training content needs to be inclusive of what is actually required for this change to occur. Mobile learning programs will be more effective, efficient, and successful when engaging, experiential brain-based activities are included.

In this session you will explore information and resources about the incorporation of brain-based approaches to developing mobile learning content. You will discover how this information will enhance the development and implementation of mLearning to create more effective, efficient successful training and learning activities. You will leave this session with tips and tools to begin your transition to a brain-based approach to mobile learning.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The importance of moving from a content/information-driven approach to a learner-centered, brain-based approach to mLearning.
  • Positive implications for developing content with the brain in mind
  • Suggestions for a whole-brain approach to developing content
  • Tips and tools for beginning the transition to a brain-based approach
  • Ways to create content that excites and stimulates curiosity about information being learned
