A theory of mobile learning

Working on the writing of the literature review for my thesis I came across a paper by Mike Sharples, Josie Taylor and Giasemi Vavoula theorising about mobile learning (2005). I found their emphasis on informal learning very interesting. When looking how Web 2.0 tools are currently changing the communications landscape on the Internet, I came to the same conclusion that formal education will have to be supplemented by informal selfdirected learning to ensure that learners can choose their own learning journey, but still verify the information out on the Web by communicating with others online.
