Unsung hero's of mobile learning

Some of you may follow the Handheld learning forum BTW only few days remaininig of early bird discount for the October conference and that free Nintendo DS.

The site has been running a series of interviews on hero educators including great colleagues in the mobile learning field like Derek Robertson
and Mike Sharples .

I have a new category to suggest Unsung hero's of mobile learning. I.e those working in the frontline teaching young and not so young people .

Can I embarrasss two of them by naming them Colin Bell and Mick Mullane of Yorkshire Coast College . Mick is well known in the technical area of mobile and Colin is a frontline practitioners working in the field of podcasting vodcasting with a range of engineering motor vehicle learners . Ive been moving my practice with my ipod touch up a gear and wanted to present from it . Problem two sets of cables you can buy. Rang Apple support sadly not there usual Apple savvy selves. Then rang Mick who put me onto Colin and sorted the problem in fact Colin Bless him provided online support by SMS when setting up .
Whays even funnier is I actually sourced cables from my local Argos .

Andys thought for the day is technology well on the way to being
mainstream when it appears in Argos and fully embedded when it appears
at Sainsbury's Tesco !!!

Colin and Mick Step up to the podium unsung hero's of mobile learning !!!
