The project focuses on the use of mobile technologies as a key factor to develop flexible LLL frameworks for education and training. Moreover, as long-term, the MOTILL aims to involve policy makers that should sustain the strategic plans and learning activities based on the results of the project, and promote an increase in the rate of people involved in training programs.

Some of the main results of the project are:

  • an up-to-date survey on the use of mobile technologies in learning and training projects in the partners’ countries; this survey takes into account also the policies set up in the various countries by the relevant institutions;
  • a methodological framework to analyse and highlight best practices in this context. This framework  identifies the key factors to assess and the main indicators to consider, and establishes the principal criteria for constructing the evaluation grid;
  • an open space for public discussions, involving public and private institutions, research centres, educators, and trainers, on the impact of Information Society Technologies (IST) on the future of LLL.

The project collects, organizes and analyzes new pedagogical approaches that exploit mobile technologies for LLL. In particular, the project have produced a MOTILL Web Portal aimed at supporting knowledge construction and sharing of common experiences. A Scientific Annotated Review Database (SARD), i.e. an annotated repository, brings together projects, key experiences and scholarly studies concerning LLL experiences using mobile technologies. Moreover, a Best Practices Collection (BPC) draws together national m-learning projects examined from different points of view. This collection aids the determination of the impacts of various mobile LLL projects on participation and social inclusion policies.  Users can search for specific best practices. The MOTILL Web Portal uses a common methodological framework implemented via an evaluation grid. Finally, project reports, concerning methodological aspects, national policies, and technical results about the use of mobile technologies in LLL initiatives have been produced.

The project have involved researchers and national/local agencies in the definition of strategic plans, increasing their awareness of the possible impact of mobile technologies on LLL, and providing educators with the technological and methodological scaffolding necessary to implement these policies.
