The New Landscape of Mobile Learning is the first book to provide a research-based overview of the largely untapped array of potential tools that m-Learning offers educators and students in face-to-face, hybrid, and distance education. This cutting-edge guide provides:
Although many believe that Apps have the potential to create opportunities for transformative mobile education, a disparity currently exists between the individuals responsible for creating Apps (i.e. developers who often have little to no instructional experience) and the ultimate consumers in the classroom (i.e. K-20 educators and students). The New Landscape of Mobile Learning will bridge this gap and illuminate critical design, integration, and evaluation narratives from leaders in the instructional design, distance education, and mobile learning fields.
Part 1: The emergence and role of apps in education
Part 2: Design guidelines and frameworks for educational apps
Part 3: Educational app design and development narratives
Part 4: App integration cases, stories, and research

Part 6: The not-so-distant future of apps and mobile learning
