Ten ideas for Learning using Mobile Gadgets

Leonard Low identifies some interesting ideas which when combined might just be more powerful than the usual desktop-bound approach to learning:

  • Situational/proximal
  • Social/Collaborative
  • Just-In-Time
  • Lifelong/Informal
  • Contextualised/Adaptive
  • Convenient/Portable
  • Personalised/Individual
  • Connected
  • Ubiquitous

I counted only 9, so another one could be Decentralized (Think: James Surowiecki's Wisdom of Crowds). I'd like to describe that combination as leading towards a richer, more real and more relevant learning. For more on the article, have a listen here.
