3. Leave time to learn
Professional development opportunities are only valuable if teachers have the time to take advantage of them. Free up time for faculty members by freeing them from administrative tasks. There are several time-saving apps and tools for teachers to help with everything from planning lessons to corresponding with parents.
4. Enable community collaboration
Student success is positively related to collaboration with the school community and peer observation. With the transparency offered by technology, teachers need the support of their colleagues more than ever.
A learning management system (LMS) like Pedagogue enables educators to learn and grow. It’s a safe space where they can share tips, strategies, tools, hacks, resources, and more. and work together to improve their teaching skills and the academic performance of the students under their care.
5. Don’t be prescriptive or restrictive
At a minimum, teachers should have the same flexibility on a mobile learning platform that they have in their classrooms. Technology offers great opportunities for supervision, but your teachers don’t want to feel like Big Brother is watching them.
Rest easy knowing that a thriving mobile learning environment won’t happen overnight. Your faculty should feel free to make mistakes and learn from them. If faculty members are afraid to try things for fear of breaking the system, they will bypass it. Remember that a teacher’s job and passion is to teach.
6. Ensuring a stable and efficient infrastructure
Last but not least, teachers must have confidence in the mobile learning infrastructure. A system that breaks down and forces them to switch between mobile and manual instruction modes will burn them out and frustrate them.
Infrastructure needs for mobile learning platforms will depend on the LMS and other tools selected. Pay attention to concurrent user limits and build an offline/disaster plan into the implementation requirement.
