Jisc Mobile Learning

The Jisc Scotland Newsletter for December 2015 carried a feature on mobile learning.

New case studies of inclusive mobile learning practice

Jisc have recently updated their mobile learning guide and it now features new case studies and video resources highlighting some interesting examples of inclusive mobile learning from across the UK:

City of Glasgow College offer 3 case studies explaining:

· How they introduced the Grid 2 software and Grid Player mobile app into the class to enhance the learning experience with assistive technology.

· How mobile technology was introduced to students on NQ personal and social development programme supporting students with mild to moderate support needs. Staff worked with students to trial different types of technology to enhance and remove barriers to their learning.

· How built in features have assisted students with physical barriers to learning.

The University of Glasgow worked closely with the company, Appscool to create a series of literacy apps targeted at key areas of weakness which school pupils exhibit at national levels four and five in English during their examinations.
