The Presentation:
During her fieldwork in Nepal Eleanor Dewar became interested in the use of mobile phones, particularly in connection with e-learning and m-learning. With the rapidly increasing adoption of mobile phones within Nepal and other South Asian countries across all levels of society, this talk builds on her fieldwork around literacy and explores current mobile phone usages and the potentials for m- and e-learning in the South Asian context. Eleanor will expand on what is currently available and potential developments in smartphone use for both schooling and lifelong learning.
