Creating Situated Learning Environments through Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Situated learning is learning that takes place in the same context in which it is applied. Situated learning is a highly effective form of active learning where students are creating meaning (and learning) out of distinct combinations of content, context, practice, and participation. For our project, we will put together a proof of concept to support the academic situations of students through MDM. Our pilot group will be student teachers completing an edTPA pre-service assessment process in order to become certified teachers. We will integrate a MDM system to manage and customize mobile devices to the needs of the student teachers, and control the deployment of software and technology based on their needs. We will also integrate a concierge service to provide an interpersonal support system through the mobile devices. This case study will allow us to see how we can leverage MDM systems to support individual academic achievement.
