Mobile Learning: The Next Step in Technology-Mediated Learning

March 31, 2007

“Mobile Learning: The Next Step in Technology Mediated Learning” – http://tinyurl.com/3ckqlz – looks at both what learning is and how it might be changing as mobile devices become ever more common. The author of the article, Ellen Wagner, is the director of worldwide e-learning at Adobe Systems Inc. I recommend this brief but insightful article highly.

Courtesy of Stephen Downes – http://www.downes.ca/cgi-bin/page.cgi?post=39608 – I really like the quote he chose to highlight:

Learning is a deeply personal act, best facilitated by relevant, reliable and engaging experiences, yet many teaching approaches still rely on more impersonal ‘command and control’ models that include an instructor in charge, specific goals to be met and criteria to be mastered.

A comment that captures the complexity of education today.
