We should be effecting changes in academic perceptions of the learning process, embracing a new reality of learning controlled and owned by individual learners who are using multiple devices; the trend towards universal ownership of these devices and an expectation that these technologies will be recognised as part of the fabric of education (formal and informal study) is unmistakably there.
