MetadataShow full item record
mLearn is now in its fifth year. Although mobile learning has a much longer history, the inauguration of a conference for learning in the mobile age marked an important point in its development. This paper takes a retrospective look at the mLearn conferences from 2002 through to 2005; reflecting on our progress in order to facilitate the transition of mobile learning from a novel research concept into a viable means of providing meaningful learning opportunities “across generations and cultures”. We hope that this paper will act as a minicompendium or ready-reference for those embarking on mobile learning projects, a starting point for those entering the field and a reminder to those who have already contributed to its making.
