Critical Mobile Pedagogy
Critical Mobile Pedagogy is an exploration of mobile technologies for designing and delivering equitable and empowering education around the globe. Synthesizing a diverse range of projects and conceptual frameworks, this case-based collection addresses the ambitions, assumptions, and impacts of interventions in under-researched, often disadvantaged communities.
The editors and authors provide a nuanced and culturally responsive approach to showcasing:
- indigenous, nomadic, refugee, rural, and other marginalized communities
- emerging pedagogies such as curation, open resources, massive open online courses (MOOCs), and self-directed learning
- contextual factors, including pedagogy, ethics, scaling, research methodology and culture, and consequences of innocuous or harmful implementation and deployment
- the nature of participation by global capital, multinationals, education systems, international agencies, national governments, and telecoms companies.
Scholars, academics, policymakers, and program managers are increasingly using mobile technologies to support disadvantaged or disempowered communities in learning more effectively and appropriately. This books diverse research precedents will help these and other stakeholders meet the challenges and opportunities of our complex, increasingly connected world and work with greater cultural and ethical sensitivity at the intersection of education, research, and technology.
