mEvaluate: Devising an evaluation framework for the design and use of mobile learning applications in early years' education
1st October 2017 - 1st November 2018
m-Evaluate aims to provide robust evidence about the impact of selected mobile applications on the learning and development of 5-years old and produce a research-based evaluation framework that will guide the design of apps and help parents and teachers make informed decisions when choosing apps for their children. It builds on previously funded work by BERA (British Educational Research Association) investigating the impact of mobile applications on young children’s science learning and understanding. Findings from this study have been published in the British Journal of Educational Technology (BJET) and presented in various conferences including E-Learn, BERA conference and CALRG.
