But with the ever growing (and simplifying) augmented mobile learning, it becomes a very feasible way of getting learners up to speed with the latest knowledge. Situated learning was first proposed by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger as a model of learning in a Community of practice. And I am in to that concept!

2010: the year we make contact?

uLearning Blog

Welcome to 2010. feel a bit foolish writing my first 2010 blog entry when the announcement that might define mobile and ubiquitous computing this year is still a week away, but there have been enough early signs from a range of companies to make some assumptions, and speculate on what they will mean for learning that attempts to take advantage them. So, is learning and the institutions who’s job it is to propagate it ready to embrace a touch-computing future? I’d like to think so. That’s the hardware story.

Thoughts on the Current State of Mobile Devices

The Mobile Learner

What will the immediate future of mobility look like? Only a few short years ago, when mobile devices were still mainly cell phones and music players, the thought of a mobile revolution supplanting the computer revolution seemed distant. Computers ruled for three main reasons: more powerful hardware, better software and, most importantly, much faster access to the internet. We stand at another major technological turning point where typing is being supplanted by thumbing and access to information is immediate. Desktop vs. Laptop vs. Netbook vs. Tablet. Desktop vs. Mobile OS.
