Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2015
A staff writer from MetaMoji Corporation, global developer of business productivity and classroom apps, has just published a thought leadership piece in the university journal ECampusNews.com. In the article, MetaMoji’s staff writer Pamela Millar describes how mobile technology in general, and tablet computers in particular, are resulting in a movement toward “personalized blended learning” where teachers provide a more customized, and interactive teaching approach to reach certain students. The result is emerging as an education movement known as personalized blended learning.
MetaMoji Corporation had the honor of also interviewing and discussing mobile technology in the classroom with education leader Dr. Steve Perry. He is quoted as saying: “For decades, higher education has followed a tried and true, largely unchanged format since the Industrial Revolution. While modern-day technology has transformed other critical aspects of society, from the way products are manufactured to how goods and services are delivered to the way people manage their day-to-day lives, the approach to higher education had resisted opportunities for game-changing advancements. Fortunately, in the last several years, new entrants and approaches within the education arena have spurred the industry’s rapid adoption of new technologies, and substantially enhanced the options available to continuing education students.“
As this movement proceeds, many teachers are adapting lessons plans from linear thinking to a more fluid organic discovery incorporating exploration across the internet. The article states, “The role of the teacher in this freeform discovery is to give guidance and coherence to the student as they discover. Teachers who tap into this quest for “edutainment” are finding ways to reach students in the back of the classroom who tend to zone out of lessons based on traditional linear thinking. Many schools are adapting to these new approaches to student engagement.”
