CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--While older generations simply had to memorize facts at school, today's children and young adults learn best by playing, often with digital gadgets, according to experts at the Sandbox Summit. Held at the MIT Media Lab, the conference brings together educators and technologists seeking ways to better reach Generations Y and Z--groups ranging from toddlers to 20 somethings--and equip them with skills for the digital lifestyle of the 21st century. In additional to making compelling online games and educational content, they are also trying to design toys which bridge offline play with online apps. New technology, particularly multi-touch tablets, has brought interactive media and games to infants barely able to sit up by themselves. Mobile apps reshape toys and learning | Cutting Edge

Mayra Aixa Avilar (who I hope to meet someday, maybe at mLearnCon?)pointed to this post saying “mLearning is starting to diverge from eLearning not only in specific meaning, but in approach and design as well”, and I want to politely disagree. Depends, of course, on what you mean by elearning, to start with. The clear implication is that elearning is about courses on the desktop.

The Android device or iPhone is ubiquitous, always with them (and me!).

Mobile Curation is now Easier than Ever with Scoop.it for AndroidScoop In today’s world, everything is mobile. Sharing photos, tweets, status updates and check-ins wouldn’t be half as fun if we couldn’t do it from anywhere our busy lives took us. Though long form content creation will remain difficult to mobilize, we see mobile curation as an opportunity to take one step closer to this. Most aspects of curation are already compatible with today’s smartphones; we can read content, edit and include short-form commentary, and of course, share to various social networks with a few swipes of the finger. With this in mind, we listened to your feedback and combined all of these elements into the very first mobile curation app, Scoop.it for iPhone, which gives users a simple, efficient, and visually appealing way to curate on the go.
