New Definition for Mobile Learning (8/2011)

Woman learning on the go.

Mobile learning is not about the size of your device.

Rather, it is about people moving through environments, learning as they go, both from the real context in which they are immersed and from use of any electronic device that allows connectivity to information sources and communication facilities while they are able to change their physical location.

In short, my new definition of mobile learning is “learning in context.” This change has profound implications for instructional design for mobile devices, a topic that I will discuss in later posts.
