In the face of the "new normal" of decreased budgets and increased expectations,

many administrators are turning to technology to enhance teaching and learning while mitigating the consequences of consecutive years of budget cuts. Mobile learning, in particular, has attracted a great deal of attention for its potential to engage students by leveraging the technology environment they have grown accustomed to in their non-school lives; its potential to scale personalized learning and reduce the digital divide; its potential to extend learning beyond the four walls of the classroom and the limited hours of the school day; and its potential to enable new pedagogies based on the affordances of these devices that students already carry at their fingertips.Still, the field of mobile learning is still emerging and there are many questions to be addressed when contemplating a mobile learning implementation.

Based on the experience of pioneering schools and districts, industry experts, and leading scholars in the field, this resource is intended to provide information and context to support administrators in answering these and other questions. This living guide contains the following resources:

This guide is intended to serve as a starting point for school districts that are exploring the possibilities and potential of mobile learning. As mobility in education is a quickly evolving field, our goal is to provide timely resources which can be easily updated in the form of a wiki. This is a work in progress.
