Based on the popularity of my previous mobile learning reading list blog post, I decided to post another reading list with some of the more recent items I’ve read or seen around the topic of mobile learning.  All of these articles and more can be found under the mobile learning tag in my del.icio.us bookmarks.

  1. Hi Rob,
    Thanks for the link to my blog on your new reading list. I have been working with the iPod Touch in my class for a year now, since the App Store first opened. It has its highs and lows, but this technology dovetails so perfectly with my philosophy of catering to the individual learner, connecting to those learners and providing them with new ways for them to share and communicate, 21st century style, in the palm of their hand. I am heading to the UK and US in a couple of months on a mobile learning ‘odyssey’, so there will be much more to read about on my blog. I am also about to embark on a project with a local university supplying the iPod Touch to all their graduate teachers. Thanks again for the pingback, Louise.

    • It’s my pleasure. While it’s always nice to connect with individuals who have an interesting in mobile learning, it’s even nicer when connections can be made to those who are actually using handheld devices with students to help them learn. Thanks for sharing your work and we’ll keep a keen eye on the new experiences your share.
