IJMBL Vol. 4 No. 1 Is Out

The latest issue of the International Journal for Mobile and Blended Learning has just been published. It contains a couple of articles from the mobile research strand at the 2011 Learning Without Frontiers Conference that I chaired. My introduction to those articles can be found here. It’s sort of ironic this issue is being published now, as Learning Without Frontiers 12 is taking place in London this week.

Mobile 2012 Conference

I went to this conference in Phoenix last year, and it was great, so I highly recommend it. Here is some news I just got from the Mobile 2012 organizers:


The Arizona K12 Center is excited to bring you Mobile Learning Experience 2012!  If you haven’t already registered and you are interested in attending again this year, good news…we extended Early Bird rates until this Sunday, January 29th!  Attached is a flyer with more information, we hope to see you there!
