November 2020 TLC teaching tip: How can mobile devices be used in education?

Mobile learning, or m-learning, is a term to describe when mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops are used as learning tools in an educational setting (Davison & Lazaros, 2015). Mobile learning is flexible in that it can be used for just-in-time learning, and is not limited to a specific environment or context (Crompton and Burke, 2018; Martin and Ertzberger, 2013). The portable nature and prevalence of these devices creates enormous potential to harness this technology to improve student learning. 

What are some examples?
