    17. 17. The learner is the traveller<br />We are tour-guides<br />Technology is the vehicle<br />Learning the destination<br />
    18. 18. When you hear<br />The best device you can use is an iPhone / Android / Streak ... <br />you are choosing the transport, not defining the journey<br />The learner is the traveller<br />We are tour-guides<br />Technology is the vehicle<br />
    19. 19. When you hear<br />M-learning is all about connecting to our VLE with mobile phones<br />you are merely discussing different routes<br />

    24. 24. Mobile course interactivity involves compromise<br />Works on more devices<br />Richer interactivity<br />But there are some great toolkits & frameworks out there trying to make sense of this ...<br />
