What are these Technologies?
There are many mobile tools currently used to provide learning opportunities to learners. They include mobile phones, ‘smart phones’, PDAs (personal digital assistants also known as palms or handheld Personal Computers (PCs)), game consoles and Tablet PCs and laptops that have wireless capabilities. A report from NESTA Futurelab (Naismith, Lonsdale, Vavoula & Sharples, 2004) summarises many mobile learning projects from around the world. These projects made use of a wide range of mobile capable devices to provide learning to a diverse range of students.
