Global Education Publisher C. M. Rubin interviews The Rt Hon. the Lord Knight of Weymouth and other global thoughts leaders on Mobile Tech at the 17th Education Fast Forward (EFF) Debate in partnership with UNESCO during Mobile Learning Week in Paris.

“I think technology has the potential to unlock new approaches to assessment that will change what and how we teach. I believe that the current curriculum shape and form that we see around the world with subjects taught in silos has to change,” comments Jim Wynn, Co-Founder and CEO of Education Fast Forward and CEO of Imagine Entertainment.

With rapid advancement in technology, we’ve continued to see the global conversation on 21st century learning shift to mobile learning. The big debate at Mobile Learning Week brought together thought leaders in this field from all over the globe to discuss the latest news and views on the impact of mobile technology in life-long learning. To what extent is mobile technology strengthening the quality of education? What about access? Given the major focus on 21st century skills, what role can mobile technology play in curriculum innovation? What kinds of public policy proposals can increase the benefits of mobile technology in classrooms?

EFF Programme Director Gavin Dykes hosted the 17th Education Fast Forward debate with partner UNESCO entitled Innovation and Quality: Two Sides of the Same Coin? to discuss the issues. The debate was streamed live from Mobile Learning Week in Paris and debated by EFF Co-Founder, Supporter and Trustee, and CEO of Imagine Education, Jim Wynn; The Rt Hon. the Lord Jim Knight of Weymouth, Chair of the UK Online Foundation and HTI Education Trust; Thomas M. Philip, Associate Professor at UCLA; Professor Mike Sharples; Professor of Educational Technology at The Open University among others.
