Stephen Downes recommends that if you only read 1 chapter – a MUST read is Chapter 1 by John Traxler: Current State of Mobile Learning – which outlines major categories of mobile learning, discussion of a definition of mobile learning (which excludes the current generation of laptop and Tablet PCs), the case for mobile learning (on grounds of personal, situated and authentic learning), and attributes of an evaluation of mobile learning.
