    • If education is:
    • Content/info
    • Socialization
    • Process (how to learn/direction of learning)
    • Safety (babysitting)
    • How does Mobile Learning enhance these?
  • 12. Why are we doing this?
    • Apple says:
    • 1000’s of apps, 24/7 learning, on-the-go learning, wi-fi wherever research
    • Video chat to learn, email, take pictures, record
    • Keyboards do word prediction
    • Great accessibility features
    • iTunes U and other podcasts

  • 18. The ‘engagement’ argument
    • Is it enough to just have cool tools?
    • Is engagement that simple?
    • What happened with TV, film, filmstrips, whiteboards, coloured chalk, laser discs ???
    • Is infusion the answer? (Apologies to LwICT)
  • 19. So what are we really getting?
    • Consider the tech bias:
    • White, western, middle class, male, efficient, discrete parts, speed …
    • Are the Amish right? Where has this taken us?
    • Hans Rosling's 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes - The Joy of Stats - BBC Four

  • 20. And what comes with it?
    • Cyber-bullying
    • Identity theft
    • Too much info
    • Bad info
    • Disconnectedness (while over connected)
  • 21. But don’t be discouraged
    • There are some huge benefits to Mobile Learning!
    • We need to consider the best ways to use and adopt these technologies – that’s where the fun lies.
    • We will need to give up some control – the info is now out there for all, just like Gutenberg opened up the Bible to the public (using a wine press!).
