Thanks for posting this Andy. It comes at a time when one union is deliberating over banning mobile phones in schools due to recent news events. But that's not the way forward. Teachers should not feel threatened by the use of mobile technology as a learning platform as long as there are guidelines in place. The OpenMobileLearning propose such guidelines albeit in the USA but it's something that organisations here can work from.

Thanks Andy, We need to continually raise awareness of the potential of mobile devices to enhance learning. I was at the MoleNet Advisory board last week which will soon be disseminating the findings of one of the largest mobile projects.


Interestingly the Academy in Sheffield,where my son works,has decided to BAN all mobiles from the building!!

Ringtones plays a vital role in mobile downloading. Downloading cheap and free ringtones is one of the more popular ways we brand a phone to ourselves and identify our friends when they're calling.

Their approach to integrating mobile learning is right on, you need to teach the educators how to use them first. With their OML curriculum I think it will help accelerate this process. We run into the same situation with adults in corporate training. They all have a mobile device as well but they are still trying to figure out how to use them for training.
