Abstract

The widespread diffusion of mobile technologies in all the EU countries offers an opportunity to develop policies aimed at participation and social inclusion, considering that the use of mobile devices transcends age, social status, economic level, gender and ethnic origins. Although the scientific community has highlighted that mobile learning could be a suitable Methodology to support lifelong learning (LLL), national policies have not yet taken any significant steps to integrate LLL and mobile technologies. This integration could have a positive effect on several indicators, such as the participation rates in education2, the skill level of teachers/trainers in the use of ICTs, the diffusion of mLearning. The MOTILL project, funded by the European Commission within the National Lifelong Learning Strategies, fulfils this need for integration by developing a common framework that involved educational research centres and both public and private agencies engaged in the sector of education and training.
