Mobile Learning in Developing Countries

Traxler, John and Kukulska-Hulme, Agnes (2005). Mobile Learning in Developing Countries. Knowledge Series; Commonwealth of Learning, Vancouver, Canada.



Commissioned by the Commonwealth of Learning, this is a research-informed guide to mobile learning and includes implementation strategies, applications and case studies. Mobile learning, or m-learning, is a personal way to learn and to access educational tools and material that enlarges access to education for all. It reinforces learners' sense of ownership of the learning experience, offering them flexibility in how, when and where they learn. In developing countries, mobile technologies potentially deliver education without dependence on an extensive traditional communications infrastructure, leapfrogging some of the intervening development phases encountered in developed countries such as installing extensive electricity power grids, and building multiple computer rooms in educational institutions.
