Mobile Technologies and Learning – Literature Review

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:

  1. behaviourist
  2. constructivist
  3. situated
  4. collaborative
  5. informal and lifelong
  6. 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.
