Mobile learning promises more equitable access to education, especially to those who have suffered exclusion for social or economic reasons. Yet concerns have been raised that mobile technologies also introduce certain problems and barriers. Furthermore, unforeseen technological developments in the mobile marketplace undermine the fragile stability of mobile learning, while it struggles to assert itself as an acceptable innovation within education. This paper examines the concept of inclusive mobile learning for the new generation of mobile learning tools and strategies. It includes a review of some mobile learning projects that are furthering the inclusion agenda and bringing hope to learners who have particular needs. Finally, the paper offers a critical perspective on emerging forms of mobile interaction.
