At first blush Mobile Learning might be thought of as any learning that can happen on a mobile device, but more deeply, the opportunity is to make learning as accessible and flexible as mobile technologies have transformed other dimensions of human experience. Just because something can be accomplished on a mobile device does not make it exemplary of mobile experience. The emerging market side of mobile learning is to almost completely reinvent the processes of learning, and put them literally in every learner’s hands.
While hardly new, it is likely that we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg in terms of the impact of mobile learning on the future of education.
