Industry Fellow Carly Shuler draws on interviews with mobile learning experts as well as current research and industry trends to illustrate how mobile devices might be more broadly used for learning. Examining more than 25 handheld learning products and research projects in the U.S. and abroad, the report highlights early evidence of how these devices can help revolutionize teaching and learning. Pockets of Potential also outlines mobile market trends and innovations, as well as key opportunities, such as mobile’s ability to reach underserved populations and provide personalized learning experiences. This study was featured at the Kids@Play Summit at the 2009 International CES® in Las Vegas, and was made possible by the generous support of the Pearson Foundation, with additional support from CPB and PBS Kids Raising Readers
