Title : Determinants of culturally appropriate mobile learning in First Nations communities
Description : This session will present a framework that resulted from a study conducted in Bunibonibee Cree Nation with adult learners and elders about the determinants for culturally appropriate mobile learning in First Nations communities and technology that facilitates cognitive shifts between First Nations and Eurocentric methods of knowing. The study argues that mobile technology holds tremendous opportunity for addressing the challenges of delivering education to remote First Nations communities. Preliminary findings indicate that basic infrastructure, along with socio-cultural and economic concerns, potential unintended consequences, and technological affordances are necessary and sufficient determinants that must be considered if more gains are to be achieved.
