NESTA Futurelab has produced what seems to be a very useful review relevant to mLearning: Literature Review in Mobile Technologies and Learning
The review covers current developments but also reaches back to make links to relevant literature from previous decades, giving it a solid grounding in educational theory. A substantial part of the review is organised around activities that are classified according to major theories and areas of learning relevant to mLearning. The main themes are identified as:
- informal and lifelong
- learning and teaching support.
Each theme includes reference to relevant theorists and compatible activities. Case studies from the literature are also identified and described for each theme.
