UNESCO and NOKIA hold workshop on mobile technologies for teachers
Mobile technologies have great potential to helping teachers, both in and out of the classroom. They can provide access to useful curricular materials, strengthen collaboration between educators and encourage exchanges about pedagogical approaches
UNESCO and Nokia are preparing to launch four pilot projects to explore how mobile technologies can be used to support teachers in Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan and Senegal.
To finalize the project action plans, the Organization is organizing a workshop, “Mobile Technologies and Teacher Development”, in partnership with Nokia at its Paris headquarters on 29 and 30 March. Representatives from the four target countries will participate, along with international experts in mobile learning.
The workshop aims to ensure that the projects address the needs of teachers and advance Education for All goals in each country; to plan the main activities for each project and discuss implementation; to share mobile resources and applications that can help meet project goals; foresee the development of new resources and discuss evaluation methods.
