UNESCO believes that mobile technologies can expand and enrich educational opportunities for learners in diverse settings.
Today, a growing body of evidence suggests that ubiquitous mobile devices
– especially mobile phones and, more recently, tablet computers – are being used by learners and educators around the world to access information, streamline administration and facilitate learning in new and innovative ways.
This set of guidelines seeks to help policy-makers better understand what
mobile learning is and how its unique benefits can be leveraged to advance
progress towards Education for All.
Developed in consultation with experts in over twenty countries, the
guidelines below have broad application and can accommodate a wide range of institutions, including K–12 schools, universities, community centres, and technical and vocational schools.
Policy-makers are encouraged to adopt UNESCO’s policy recommendations, tailoring them as necessary to reflect the unique needs and on-the-ground realities of local contexts.
Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future is a multimedia teacher education programme published by UNESCO. It contains 100 hours (divided into 27 modules) of professional development for use in pre-service teacher courses as well as the in-service education of teachers, curriculum developers, education policy makers, and authors of educational materials.
UNESCO, and the international community in general, believes that we need to foster – through education – the values, behaviour, and lifestyles required for a sustainable future. Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future is rooted in a new vision of education that helps students better understand the world in which they live, addressing the complexity and interconnectedness of problems such as poverty, wasteful consumption, environmental degradation, population, health, conflict and human rights that threaten our future.
To build on achievements and create new momentum when the UN Decade closes in 2014, UNESCO, as the lead agency of the Decade, has developed a Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development. The roadmap is for Implementing the Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development.

It is intended as a resource for policy-makers to analyse contextual trends and intersecting demands on education and training systems.
