    Research

    • 1.5 billion cell phones in use globally

    • http://k12online.wm.edu/K12_Kolb_Cell.mp3

    • 3G to 4G networking expanding access to service

    • It responds to the on-demand learning interests of connected

    • citizens in an informationcentric world (Wagner, p. 4).

    • “Investigations suggest mobile devices can be effective tools for a

    • broad range of educational activities” (Thornton & Houser, p. 217).

    • It also connects formal educational experience (e.g., taking a class,

    • attending a workshop, or participating in a training session) with informal, situated learning experience (e.g., receiving performance support while on the job (Wagner, p. 3).
