Mobile stats for 2010 and 2011


We will be uploading some of our own perspectives on this in the future. I can’t help but be bowled over when I try to get my head around exactly how many people are doing useful tasks on their phones. Many of the stats are by their nature skewed. A good rule of thumb is that “the more financially viable, the more accurate the stats”.

2010: the year we make contact?

uLearning Blog

Welcome to 2010. I 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?

QR Codes: Here Today, but Gone Tomorrow


I still see QR Codes as being a useful tool for mobile and situated learning in the present day, but I have never been content to simply look at the present without looking towards the future; and in that future, I see QR Codes becoming rapidly redundant.

The Future of Reality – Controlling Objects With Your Mind

The Mobile Learner

Take the red pill if you dare and watch what could be the future of learning. This video from TED demonstrates new technology being developed where a human can interact with devices to control objects simply by thinking about them. On the one hand, a very exciting development, especially when it comes to supporting children with physical disabilities. On the other, I can’t help to feel how much this resembles the dystopian societies described in science fiction – in this case, the movie The Matrix.

The mobile future

mLearning Blog

Last week I went to another seminar, or rather a presentation about the future of the mobile web in 2010. According to Schärer and Wieser, some of the mega trends of 2010 are the more increased use of social networks on mobile phones, location-based services and augmented reality. A few interesting products (hardware and software), some of which I have never heard of, were shown. Altough mobile learning per se was not mentioned, one or two of those products certainly will have an impact on the mobile learning scene of this year. In Europe that is.
