Description - Mobile Learning by John Traxler
This timely introduction to the emerging field of mobile learning explains the technologies involved, their applications and the multiple effects on pedagogical and social practice. Mobile devices include handheld computers, smartphones and PDAs, and this handbook will emphasize the issues of usability; accessibility; evaluation; and effectiveness; drawing from case studies written by researchers and practitioners, all experts in the field. This is a cutting-edge subject in open and flexible learning, with e-learning a key issue in the UK Government's strategy to increase the number of people going in to higher education. Yet in spite of discussions at a number of e-learning conferences, very little has been published on it. The first of its kind, this handbook will be of great interest to professionals in higher and further education, and will also appeal to trainers in the business sector wanting to find out about the opportunities offered by these new technologies.
