Future Mobile Learning

Last week in a workshop on mobile learning I was looking for something interesting in that difficult time right after lunch. So I decided to talk about where mobile is going and thus additional opportunities for mobile learning. There was quite a bit of interest, so I uploaded it to SlideShare and in less than a week have had over 2,000 views and some great comments, but no additional suggestions.

What did I miss? Please add other projects in the comments.

You may also be interested in a presentation on changing technology in education which I gave in July 1996 in which I also talked about mobile.
