SIGML Book Study: Chapter 11 Mobile Learning in an International Distance Ed Program

The SIGML book study is now in week 11! This week’s chapter discusses the development of an m-learning component for a distance education program in Southern Africa. This component is based “on the integration of constructivist, situated, collaborative, and informal learning theories and activities” (Ally, 2009, p. 224). The argument is made that m-learning is part of a blend of approaches that are relevant if they help to solve identified problems and shortcomings of the existing approach.
