mLearning and Baseball

For those of us who are baseball fanatics, (not Crickett for my EU and Indian readers, although I love that game as well) HotLava Software is bringing mobile learning to the baseball diamond.

Fans attending the game have the opportunity to not only see a homerun hit, but learn how friction and drag affect the path of a baseball traveled. Although many learning institutions have attempted to teach science through the use of sports delivered by traditional methods, Kauffman and Hot Lava are taking mLearning inside the stadiums to deliver accessible and captivating on-demand Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education via mobile devices.

Baseball has always been a mathematical game. I remember from my undergraduate statistics class how much it was involved in the game, now, everyone can take part in expanding their knowledge.

Home run to HotLava!!!
