This Working Paper Series scans the globe to illuminate the ways in which mobile technologies can be used to support the United Nations Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and make learning more accessible, equitable, personalized and flexible for students everywhere.
Today there are over 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer to do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce
The subjects covered by these working paper series include Illustrative initiatives and policy implications, Exploring the potential of mobile technologies to support teachers and improve practice, and Key issues to consider and implications for policy makers and planners.
