Mobile Learning and U

What does “Mobile Learning” mean for you? Instant messaging online or text messaging via mobile phones; blogging and downloading media files for later access on iPods; playing computer games over networks; talking to distant friends with Voice-over IP; using laptops in cafes or under a tree – today's learners are technologically savvy, they have high ownership rates of small devices and they display a passion for connectedness. They have a desire for ubiquitous connectivity and assume a technologically enabled context in which to learn, where their mobile phones, pocket PCs, PDAs, laptops and iPods will be supported and not just tolerated, but encouraged.
