Designing for mobile and wireless learning
Pages 13

The previous chapters explored design in different disciplinary contexts. This chapter looks at how new technical opportunities can change what is considered effective in pedagogic design. There is much interest in the possibility that mobile and wireless technologies can support greater choice in how learners engage with learning activities, and, from the educator’s point of view, that this might enable more flexible approaches to learning design. Developments in mobile learning could therefore have a significant impact on learning and teaching practices. In this chapter, the authors examine how the potential is being realized and suggest constructive ways of thinking about design for these new technologies.
