In today’s mobile-enabled-society we are increasingly always-on, linked socially via our mobile-devices. In our lives, learning happens in a similar way… all the time, through our connections and interactions with one another. We learn continuously, (not just in schools) but also everywhere, flexibly, adaptable to our needs as they arise in real-time and through others. The role of mobile technology is thus totally changing the way we can learn: Mobile-Learning. Come and exchange with those making it happen today, and hear how mobile-technologies can accelerate our ability to learn new skills and capabilities.
