Abstract

Mobile technologies continue to offer unprecedented opportunities for economic growth in both developing ami developed countries. Mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets enable innovation and help students, teachers, and parents gain access to digital content and personalised assessment vital for a post-industrial world. Mobile technologies transform healthcare by improved chronic disease management, empowering the elderly and expectant mothers to have access to emergency services with a touch of a button. Therefore, this paper examined how mobile technologies serve as a strategic enabler in the transformation of education and health sectors. The challenges facing the implementation of mobile technology in both sectors and ways to overcome these hurdles are also discussed. Recommendations are suggested for future action on the deployment of mobile technology in both education and health sectors in Nigeria.
