    "The Future of Mobile Learning” can be located at the Educause site – in the library. A direct link to the page, from which you can download this article, can be found here http://www.educause.edu/library/resources/future-mobile-learning. This is a great article. It is post-secondary oriented from a US perspective but, nevertheless, it is worth a read.

    “Turning on Mobile Learning in North America,” a UNESCO publication, located at http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0021/002160/216083e.pdf This reading addresses both the USA and Canada (but it does include Canada), and it also discusses K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. It is quite difficult to find a good article that is devoted to mobile learning in Canadian K-12 education. This reading is the one for which you will write a critique.

    Mobile Learning Content and Activities
    Material posted to UR Courses on Mobile Learning for the first content module in ECI 830, facilitated by the course instructors.

    Introduction
    WhatWe have chosen Mobile Learning (or M-Learning) as the first content topic for this course (January 2013). Over the past few weeks we have been browsing the extensive literature on this topic and have selected for you some key readings, podcasts, and videos. As with any topic created for this course, we will only be able to scratch the surface of the topic in a two-week period, but we do hope that you will engage with this topic and perhaps explore beyond what we have provided.
    1. Introductory Activities
    Watch:
    YouTube video on mobile learning-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68KgAcx_9jU&list=PLC8D93E5884F335F8&index=9 (enter mobile learning in YouTube and select ischool)
    Also watch “Why Mobile Learning?” on YouTube. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dECs3SRh8Xo
    Read:
    Please start by going to Wikipedia and reading the M-Learning definition and outline provided there. Here
    is the direct link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_learning As you go through the contents of this link you will be able to read about the history of M-Learning, dating from pre- 1970s to 2000s, an analysis of the costs, benefits and forecast, the delivery of M-Learning, the approaches used, and the technologies that constitute M-Learning. Take some time to explore this Wikipedia site as it provides a good overview of the rest of this module.
    2. Readings for this Topic
    The first set of readings is NOT mandatory, but we think they will greatly help in your understanding of
    mobile learning?learning. We encourage you to browse through A-D below before doing the mandatory reading.
    At the Educause site, please go to the “7 Things You Should Know About” (learning technology topics) and enter the key words “mobile learning.” The first resource that appears is “7 Things You Should Know About Mobile Apps for Learning.” Please download this resource and read it. The direct link is http://www.educause.edu/library/resources/7-things-you-should-know-about-mobile-apps-learningTo get a quick idea of the kinds of devices that can be used for mobile learning check out these images. There are also a number of videos about mobile learning at this link.

    Also, a great site for
    you mightto explore, is the mobile learning portal, located at http://www.mobilelearningportal.org/contentview/initiatives. At this portal you will find links to articles, books, conferences etc. all devoted to mobile learning. Search the portal and read something of interest to you. The following conference devoted to mobile learning is not included in the above portal. It is the World Conference on Mobile and Contextual Learning—in 2012 it was held in Helsinki, Finland. See http://portal.ou.nl/en/web/mlearn-2012/home. You may wish to first visitcheck out some of the conference links and read through what some folks are presenting, especially the keynote presentations. In this portal, find the MLearning link to “white papers” and there you will find the following title “State of Mobile Learning in Canada and Future Directions.” This article leans towards the post-secondary sector, but it is definitely Canadian.
