M-learning or not M-learning?

At the AOC Nilta conference .Earlier this week I was lucky enough to see Geoff Elliot of Pembrokeshire College present on there beacon award winning m-learning project http://www.pembrokeshire.ac.uk/mlearning
A college that has won 7 AOC beacon awards in 6 years http://www.pembrokeshire.ac.uk/news/SevenBeaconAwards

Great presentation outlining the project the people they were trying to reach and the challenges. If you don't know Pembroke is an objectuive one area due its pockets of deprivation

I found out later in the week a nice article in FE focus on his work

Interestingly next page was a editorial article that wasn't quite so positive

dont know what you think but to very different views I will leave you to make your own mind up.


Interesting Ewan MCintosh has a poll on his blog about mobile use in schools you might like to go the page and contribute http://edu.blogs.com/edublogs/2007/03/should_kids_use.html

Some interesting stuff there, typical TES reaction to innovation though in their editorial.
