Since 2004, the New Media Consortium (NMC) has profiled select emerging technologies and practices that an advisory board predicts will enter mainstream use in learning-focused organizations over the next one to five years. For several years, the adoption and use of mobile devices and services have been featured in its annual Horizon Report.
In this presentation, we will review the mobile phenomenon and profile a wide array of initiatives and projects that offer anytime/anywhere access to a variety of educational and information resources, services, and sources. We will conclude with a review of current and potential challenges and opportunities that institutions and their departments face in the ever-expanding mobile environment.
Gerry McKiernan is the owner of the personal blog Spectrum > Mobile Learning, Libraries and Technologies, which is devoted to documenting activities, initiatives, and projects relating to mobile technologies and their applications in educational environments.
