Review of “Handbook of Mobile Learning”

Berge and Lin Y. Muilenburg, and written by almost 100 authors, is clearly an academic offering that will be of interest to those researching and studying mobile learning. It will not be widely purchased by practitioners in corporate training, but should be considered by mobile learning strategists and consultants of all stripes. The 53 chapters in the handbook are divided into five parts: history and theory; learning and learner support; teaching and instructional design; policies, administration and management; and cases and perspectives. Bottom line: “It is not surprising that a book with almost 100 authors has some unevenness in terms of relevance and content. I have written a long review of this book on the Float Mobile Learning blog. Mobile Learning - Mobile Learning. A Model for Mobile Learning.

I think the reason for this is that when we start creating models, that reflects a deeper understanding of the concepts behind mobile learning. Like this: Like Loading...

According to a new eMarketer report, “Worldwide Social Network Users: 2013 Forecast and Comparative Estimates,” nearly one in four people worldwide will use social networks in 2013.

Social Networking Reaches Nearly One in Four Around the World

The number of social network users around the world will rise from 1.47 billion in 2012 to 1.73 billion this year, an 18% increase. By 2017, the global social network audience will total 2.55 billion. The rapidly expanding social network audiences in the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa will be huge drivers of social user growth. Though Asia-Pacific will have the largest social network population worldwide through 2017 and the Middle East and Africa will have the second-largest audience starting next year, their population penetration rates are among the lowest. Out of the countries included in the forecast, eMarketer expects the fastest increases to come from the social network user populations of India, Indonesia, Mexico, China and Brazil. Previous Article.
