What’s in a m-learning toolkit? Well according to Jenni Parker that would be tools like twitter, Audacity, FrontlineSMS, and (you guessed it) Poll Everywhere! Check out Jenni’s thesis, embedded below, to learn about mobile training activities that are applicable not only in developing countries but in your own classroom as well.
“The result of [Jenni's] thesis project is a Mobile Learning Toolkit that is designed to empower trainers in Africa and other developing contexts to integrate mobile learning into their teaching.” from Jenni Parker’s blog

Meet Jenni Parker.
Originally from Scotland, Jenni recently graduated from Politecnico di Milano, Italy with an MS in Product Service Systems Design. She is currently working for the Global Learning Centre of the UNHCR in Budapest.
We stumbled across Jenni (and her wonderful thesis) a few months ago. Jenni has dedicated her studies to teaching in developing contexts, through the use of mobile learning. Jenni would like to stress the opensource nature of her thesis. “No one ever reads your thesis … [and] I wanted to do something useful.” She encourages you to share her project and contact her with any comments or questions.
