Presentation for the VII International Seminar of the UOC UNESCO Chair in e-Learning: Mobile Technologies for Learning & Development.

20th century education required that materials were developed in advance by the instructor, and information were scarce and publishing limited. Today information is indeed abundant and publishing is pervasive and easily accessible by students staying connected while on the go. Wireless devices are replacing wired ones in all walks of life, whereby a massive and increasing number of people soon own a computer that fits in their hand and is able to connect to the network wirelessly from virtually anywhere. 21st Century education requires that learning processes are developed dynamically both inside and outside of class with students as codevelopers, or even as primary codevelopers.
