"Today there are over six billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce. This Working Paper Series scans the globe to illuminate the ways in which mobile technologies can be used to support the United Nations Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and make learning more accessible, equitable, personalized and flexible for students everywhere." from source: http://www.unesco.org/

ghbrett's insight:

This page includes four Mobile Learning Publications with numerous links to region specific content on mobile learning. Plus there are links to extensive bibliographic resources about mobile learning. This page is a great starting point for anyone looking into mobile learning and its impact on diverse communities of learners. A very worth while read and bookmark.
