Mobile Learning: Making the Digital Promise Real

Posted on 07/25/2016

Digital Promise

In a guest blog post on Digital Promise Blog about Adult Education, Alison Ascher Webber, the Associate Director of the Avasant Foundation and Advisor to Cell-Ed, describes the vast and largely untapped mobile education technology market for low-skilled adults. The convenience of a mobile device may be the key to helping the nation’s adult learners succeed.

In the post Webber states that “The market for mobile education technology is vast and, more important, mostly untapped. But for the “digital promise” of new learning technologies to be made real for those in need of basic skills, mobile instruction must be designed for their real lives and learning needs.”

Read more about how Webber makes a case for “all hands on deck to reach and effectively train the 36 million adults in the U.S., and close to a billion people globally, who lack basic and career skills. Mobile learning is a critical solution for meeting these workers literally wherever they are.”
