As in other areas of education where the possibilities offered by mobile learning are being increasingly investigated, there is a growing body of research in the field of Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL). The collection of papers in this volume addresses secondary and tertiary education, mobile devices and mobility of learners. The authors describe both the successes and challenges they faced, and consider some of the barriers to the adoption of MALL. Sufficient research has been carried out for MALL to have been identified as separate from computer assisted language learning (CALL). Within this special issue, Kukulska-Hulme and Shield provide an overview of studies that have been carried out in the last six years or so, and the move from content delivery to supported collaboration and interaction.
