mLearning: From theory to practice

internetThis practical seminar takes a brief look at the history of mobile and handheld learning from the early days of text messaging to the current possibilities afforded by sophisticated devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.
Gavin Dudeney then moves on to examine the shift that takes place when learners are encouraged to keep their mobile devices switched on in class (instead of turning them off!) and shares a basic theoretical rationale for their regular implementation, considering both the pros and cons of such an initiative.
A range of practical ideas are presented that teachers can immediately implement in their classes across a variety of levels and contexts.
