Mobile Learning is a evolutionary process shaped by the societal need to adapt to the current phase of societal development Developing a Working Thesis:
The mobility of the individual increases the capabilities of individuals to adapt to their environment and social circumstances. Developing a Working Thesis:
The future of mobile learning is not dependent on access to technology and related infrastructure, but rather developing the awareness, skills and capabilities within individuals to decide if mobile-learning brings them personal benefit. Working Thesis:
Lesser developed regions are more likely to adopt mobile learning scenarios in order to achieve (or maintain) a more equal social standing with other more developed regions. Working Thesis:
Technology enhanced mobile learning is a result of current societal developments (Globalization)and will become the dominant method of knowledge acquisition within non-formal and informal learning scenarios Developing a Working Thesis:
