Implementing mobile learning in schools

22 April 2015

A Research on Learning and Educational Innovation seminar with Dr Boris Handal.

Dr Boris Handal is an associate professor in educational technologies at the University of Notre Dame, Australia. He has taught in schools and universities for more than 30 years in Australia, Asia and Latin America. Last year he was invited to be a visiting professor by the University of Alberta to study the implementation of digital technologies in schools in North America.

During 2014, Dr Handal visited 30 educational sites and interviewed more than 100 eminent teachers, principals, district superintendents and academics in the US, Canada and Australia to study the implementation of mobile digital devices in teaching and learning. During that period evidence and exemplars were collected that related to issues that currently challenge educators worldwide, including modern pedagogies, digital citizenship, institutional change, equity and professional learning. His upcoming book Mobile Makes Learning Free provides new conceptual frameworks to understand best practice in the field of mobile learning.
