  • The mLearning revolution has merely provided mobile learning in the classroom. (Nash, 2009)

  • Interacting with a desktop computer takes place in a bubble, in dedicated times and places where the learner has their back to the world for a substantial and probably premeditated episode. Interacting with a mobile is different and woven into all the times and places of peoples lives Desktop technologies operate in their own small world, mobile technologies operate in the world. (Traxler, 2010)

  • Mobile Learning Means going beyond just mobile technologies or delivering content to mobile devices.

  • Mobile Learning Meansbeing able to operate successfully in and across new and ever changing contexts and learning spaces. (Pachler, 2009)
