The gift of mLearning is in unlocking the barriers to experience placed upon the learner in our “schools”….how interpretation through experience changes the learning process is ever-present in an mLearning event. There are the shades of a decolonization of learning evident….how students reflect, the mentors pace, the chance to dwell in a place is not remotely akin to the “school” experience of disjointed timed obsolescence in learning. mLearning is also more than a “field trip” to a museum. Phones, flips, video, collaboration, purpose, reflection, network, connection…..this organic experience is meaningful and lasting.
Being in this Museum with learners who are engaged outside the borders of the school makes me preflect on a day when we will be mentoring mLearning trips to museums of learning where our past will seem painful because of the time it took to change education from a schooling process to a learning network.
I look forward to reading that memorial.
