Cell Phones in Schools? Part IV

doubledeckerbus.jpg 

Ewan Mcintosh’s post I referred to in Part III of my cell phone ramblings was blogged from the Handheld Learning 2006 conference in London. The presentation he refers to has been posted here. In addition, many other presentations from the Handheld Learning 2006 conference are available for viewing on the Handheld Learning Forum. The forum as a whole is a great resource for anything related to mobile devices and learning, btw.

While my work is still focused mostly on the ideas of ubiquitous computing for education, what I keep seeing over and over again is the importance of both mobility and connectedness. That’s why conferences like Handheld Learning are still so very important. Sorry to say I had to miss it this year, maybe next year…
