Comment on this summary
7 months agoAlthough the book is from 2012 it still provides ideas how to roll out a mobile learning project properly. But I doubt that ASTD forecasts back then are accurate
5 years agoGreat and truthfull thing is that new technology provides us learning with moving,but unfortunately,most of people using them just for fun.
6 years agoI meant "our lives practically......."
6 years agoThe tablet is barely 3 yrs old,but in that short time it has proven to be a formidable learning tool. Our learning practically run on apps. So should our learning. And get abstract is the industry leader for books.
6 years agoScope seems a little narrow with just mobile. It may have addressed walled vs. open field approaches, or the coming massively open courseware, but the abstract did not show that. I would also hope that tagging and communities is stressed over elaborate content taxonomies. Oh, and keep it granular for whatever module you create!
6 years agoAnother great book summarized by getAbstract. This summary even reinforces the need for getAbstract too. “People learn better for longer when the learning instances are smaller and spread out.”
6 years agoGreat summary!
