Is Mobile Learning Heading A Wrong Way?

    () (Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iaşi, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, Doctoral School of Economics)


Mobile technologies are commonplace in our society, with more than 4.5 billion mobile cellulars registered worldwide in 2009. With so much available equipment, learning solutions providers have a long history of experiments concerning the delivery of information to a specific user, preferable in any location he might be. However recent surveys or position stances assumed by teachers, trainers or authors seem to indicate that behind mobile learning discussions lays a very immobile reality.
