SMILE is a mobile learning platform designed to cause a paradigm shift within education by enabling students to be active agents in their own learning. By utilizing both mobile and micro cloud-based technology, students create, solve, evaluate, and present questions based on their individual research and interest. In SMILE, the quality of the student-generated question is the evidence of learning outcomes, not test scores. This presentation shares lessons learned from implementing SMILE in unique education settings in Asia: a rural village education center in South India, a rural village mixed-grade Islamic boarding school in Indonesia, a South Korean medical university with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) iPads, and a rural village elementary school for first graders using government-issued OTPC (One Tablet Per Child) tablets
