mLearning…

What is mLearning?
Mobile Learning is awesome. I thought about it and that is my definition. I was thinking back to the dark ages before mobile learning was ubiquitous, before I needed internet access everywhere and anywhere. The thought is horrifying.

I think the defining characteristics of mLearning is that it changes the way we live. Mobile Learning is about accessing what we need, when we need it.

I think that the most important aspect around this technology is access. In addition to this it engages us with the world around us in a different way, phones, tablets (increasingly portable) allow us to document, reflect and create in real time, in the real world. It is strange to think, how things were before and perhaps more intriguingly where we are going…
