Special Issue of Educational Technology Magazine on Mobile Computing

Phil Vahey (SRI International) and I co-edited a special issue of Educational Technology Magazine on highly mobile computing. I’m very happy with the way the issue came out, as it has a number of quality articles from well-known researchers in the field of mobile computing. The issue contains the following articles (note that I’ve posted three of the articles online, if you want the entire issue you’ll need to order it from the publisher. There is some rumor though that the entire issue may be posted online this summer. I’ll keep you posted on that one. In the meantime, enjoy!
