Abstract

M-learning provides a means by which to enable teacher professional development that is both meaningful and effective—that is differentiated and meets the unique and specific needs of teachers and their students within the context of diverse learning environments, curricular guidelines, and technology constraints. This chapter addresses m-learning as an integrated component of professional development. It identifies characteristics of effective programs, describes m-learning strategies being applied in the field, and makes connections with research-based models of K–12 professional development. In addition, guidance is given for avoiding common mistakes when planning and implementing professional development and making use of mobile technology.
