MetadataShow full item record
Many educators are becoming interested in mobile learning as an alternative, or supplementary, way of delivering aspects of teaching and learning, or as a conduit to lead ‘disengaged’ youth to further learning, or as a mixture of both. This paper describes the Mobile Learning Teachers’ Toolkit project, where 19 UK college tutors were able to author their own mobile learning materials to cater for the specific needs of their students in their particular context. Also discussed are the challenges involved in setting up a mobile learning project, and some of the lessons learned.
