Panel Discussion: How can we use mobile technology to improve education in developing countries? Which mobile technologies are most versatile and appropriate for interactive teaching in poorly resourced classrooms? What are the roles of NGOs, the private sector and research institutions in contributing to mobile education? From ‘M-Ubuntu’ to mobile phones for higher education and social inclusion, what can we learn from existing mobile education initiatives?
