United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO Policy Guidelines for Mobile Learning (2013)

"Far from being a theoretical possibility, mobile learning is an on-the-ground reality: students and teachers from Mozambique to Mongolia are using mobile devices to access rich educational content, converse and share information with other learners, elicit support from peers and instructors, and facilitate productive communication.

While mobile technology is not and never will be an educational panacea, it is a powerful and often overlooked tool – in a repertoire of other tools – that can support education in ways not possible before." (S. 8)

Mit dem übergreifenden Ziel, "to allow free access to trustworthy information and data" hat die UNESCO in Zusammenarbeit mit Experten/innen aus über 20 Ländern Leitlinien zum Verständnis und zur Förderung von "Mobil Learning" entwickelt, die die "unique educational potentials and challenges" (S. 30) betonen.
