End of Desktops for Learning?
LERN member Gabriele Janes of the Canadian Marketing Association reported overhearing a colleague say she had not turned on her desktop computer in weeks, wondering if it still worked. With the dominance of mobiles, is it the end of desktops for learning?
Another LERN leader, Katie Williams, a community educator with the Hopkins Public Schools in Hopkins, Minnesota, said that the use of mobiles in schools is the clear choice as an instructional mechanism.
With blended, flipped, peer-to-peer, and online formats all changing how we offer courses and events, programmers are likely to need to make lifelong learning mobile accessibility in the near future.
