Mobile Technologies for Teaching and Learning
Mobile information technologies can unshackle learners from desks and classrooms and allow them to learn on the go. They can explore and consume information, record their learning, and collaborate with mentors and with each other at any time and in any place. A mobile device knows user location and identity, so learning can be location and situation based and personalized to the user. In this chapter, we describe current mobile computing technologies and their use in teaching and learning. We project how mobile technologies will evolve in the future and examine – using the various theories and processes of learning as a lens – how the growing affordances of these technologies may influence student learning and education in the future.
