1 RESOURCES

The suggested resources for teaching are appropriated at the discretion of the institution adapting the curriculum to implement within their institutional constraints. A suggested delivery strategy is outlined for each module that can be used as a guide towards resources needed. Ideally units should be taught as well as considered as teaching tools. This implies that every student should have access to relevant device and network access when applicable to engage through mobile technologies in order to facilitate an authentic experience. This access can be provided through but are not limited to:

  • Students own devices
  • Institutionally owned and personally used devices
  • Institutional devices used only during contact time
  • Publicly owned devices (e.g. library, community houses)

With regard to relevant mobile devices, it is advised that the implementing institution make every effort to ensure that the essential technology or access is provided. Whilst it is acknowledged that it is not ideal to have to improvise around either the technology or the access, it considered more important for students to have the experience than to depend on the availability of state of the art technology.
In resource constrained environments, presenters of the adapted course are encouraged to be creative and to improvise in order to develop the same skills through a variety of strategies. By engaging in interaction that comes close to the interaction with mobile devices, the spirit of learning that happens can be captured, making it easier for teachers and their learners to grasp the concept of learning via mobile devices, even if the technological end is minimal. Learning via mobile devices is in itself nothing new, as learning happens continuously as we live and act.The immediacy and the importance of authentic, immersed and immediate learning within the context can be experienced through creative planning, even if accessibility with mobile devices is not there (yet).GreenZoner egypt
