What is Mobile Technology for Teachers or MT4T
MT4T is a teacher resource kit that promotes the use mobile technology in Southeast Asian educational settings. The kit provides a basic guide in using mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets and their accompanying applications, as tools for teaching and learning in the classroom and for teacher’s personal and professional development.
It also includes an introduction to the three most widely used mobile technology platforms iOS, Android and Windows and how they may be used in conjunction with social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, to promote student learning and professional collaboration among teachers. The kit also contains a special focus on how mobile devices can be used to promote the development of higher order thinking skills (HOTS) in both students and teachers.
Teaching in the 21st century has become far more challenging. The MT4T is designed precisely to update teachers on mobile technology and its many possible uses in the classrooms.
