UNESCO’s Mobile Learning Guidelines – send us your feedback!

UNESCO Islamabad

UNESCO's research shows a general lack of policies related to mobile learning. To address this gap the Organization is developing a set of guidelines with relevant stakeholders to help national government policymakers and educators create environments that enable the safe, affordable and sustainable use of mobile technologies for education.

Government officials, UNESCO specialists, independent consultants, and partners from international NGOs, industry and academia discussed the first version of the guidelines at a recent workshop (2-3 July 2012). The result of the discussions is captured in the second version for review.

In order for UNESCO to create mobile learning policy guidelines that are practical, informative and balanced, it is seeking input from the public. Please consider reviewing and providing input on the guidelines on the forum.

All input is valuable and considered for inclusion by the Advisory Team developing the policy guidelines.

Public comment will close on 2 September 2012. Drawing on the collective feedback from a range of mobile learning stakeholders, UNESCO will publish a final version of the policy guidelines in early 2013.
