New My Learning Labels Google Android app includes tasking, creating series, and grading functionality. Together with the other apps, this almost creates parity with the core functions between the Google Android apps and the substantial web application (same could be said with the two Windows 10 apps).
As said in the previous post Learning Tasking and Micro Credentialing, this move to other devices (mainly mobile) creates many new use cases. Putting the system on different platforms creates better access and in doing so, also adds new use cases.
There are two good reasons to design, build, and deploy these learning label native apps for Smartphones:
First, people spend more time on their Smartphones than computers. According to one survey, Americans averaged four hours a day on mobile screens (Smartphones) in 2020, up from three hours in 2019.
Second, learning skills is pervasive in our every experience - work, learn, and play. With mobile integration and a lightweight footprint, this app creates an interesting new proposal: grade, assign experiences and tasks, react to performance, and set expectations anytime, anywhere.
From a practitioner’s view, these apps are a nimble, agile framework to work with learning tasking. From a learner’s view, these apps provide a constant feedback loop to understand skills, prepping for a task, and knowing what’s next.
