Mobile Computing

How much learning can you hold in the palm of your hand?

We've been researching this question since before mobile was mobile.

Mobile ComputingA decade ago, we all salivated over the power of the newest desktop computers. Now millions of students tuck phones with more processing power than those computers into their back pockets every day.

At the Concord Consortium, we saw this mobile revolution brewing fifteen years ago. We've been working to help you put this power to use ever since. We were the first ever to connect probes and sensors to mobile computers in the name of education. And our research has demonstrated how this combination can bring students to new learning heights.

Mobile computers are cheap and easily available. So they're a great candidate for bringing technology to all. We're researching and developing new Web technologies for these platforms so we can provide high-quality learning in science, math and engineering at any time and place. The results of this work will help students learn faster, more easily, and more conveniently.

We're also still connecting probeware to new platforms a decade after we began the quest, targeting platforms such as Android, the iPhone, and the iPad. These platforms hold incredible potential for supporting learning in new ways.

Our current projects are researching

  • How tablet computers can help transform classroom interactions
  • How combining mobile computing and probeware can foster powerful learning
  • How new technology can make models and simulations available any time and any place.

And you can see this for yourself.
