Mobile learning (m-learning), though increasingly popular given the rise in mobile phone penetration and advances in wireless and 3G technologies, has been part of the education landscape for decades. During this time the term has been conceptualized in many ways, from a technocentric perspective, meaning the use of handheld electronic devices for educational activities in or outside of classrooms, to more learner-centric 'processes of coming to know through conversations across multiple contexts amongst people and personal interactive technologies' (Sharples et al. 2007). The key distinction is whether the focus is on the mobility of the learner, or on the mobility of the device."
