We discussed opportunities for mobile learning in India on the Mobiles for Education Alliance blog. Check it out here.

Here is one of our recommendations:

“Build learning applications for both feature phones and smartphones: Smartphone penetration into India’s mobile market is expanding, but most low-income individuals are still using feature phones. Past ed-tech interventions have provided smartphones or phones pre-loaded with educational applications for students to use. The trend now is to build applications that can work on both feature phones and smartphones for students to use in the classroom and at home, making learning truly mobile and accessible. There are also a number of options to make feature phones mimic smartphones, such as InnozbiNu, and Mxit. Building applications for existing devices is more affordable and sustainable. To make learning applications truly beneficial for the classroom, content should be mapped to school curriculum, an important factor for school owners and teachers when considering whether to adopt technology.”
