This was my presentation at Learning Without Frontiers, Jan 2011, London. It was around the use of mobile technologies as mobile methods of data collection - my focus was upon the iPhone 3GS to collect ethnographic data on mobile learning on field trips. This lead to a collaborative paper, which was published later in the year which included further cases of mobile device use in research including the use of iPads.
