Connected Nation Pilots New Mobile Learning Model with AT&T, EDMODO, Kno and Samsung

By Wil Payton

Connected Nation recently facilitated a trial in collaboration with AT&T, Edmodo, Kno, and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), to pilot a new K-12 mobile learning model that combined mobile devices, connectivity and educational content with the ambition to make “anywhere education” easier than ever.

 

The pilot tested both a shared and one-to-one mobile learning model in two high school classes. It reached 100 students over an eight-week period.  Findings included:

·       Most students, teachers and parents agreed the mobile learning solution enhanced the learning experience and would like to have continued using it after the trial.

·       Participating students using the one-to-one model reported higher levels of satisfaction by about 10 percentage points.

·       Participating students said the solution was easy to use, made reading more interesting, and featured helpful functions.

·       Participating teachers agreed the solution made them more effective and teaching more interesting.

“Our aspiration is to help schools effortlessly build a mobile learning program by giving them access to preeminent companies without having to balance lots of partners,” said John Irwin, AT&T Senior Vice President of Government, Education, and Healthcare. “During the pilot, we were able to demonstrate that bringing technology leaders together with the end user in mind ultimately leads to an enriched educational experience for students.”
