Mobile devices such a mobile phones, PDAs and iPods can have more processing power, slicker displays, and more interesting applications than were commonly available on desktop machines ten years ago, and educators are quickly realising their potential to be used as powerful learning tools. However, the application of mobile technologies to learning contexts must take into account a number of factors. Above all other things, we must consider how mobile learning can be used to provide learners with better opportunities and enhanced learning outcomes. This position paper will suggest a foundation of good practice in mobile learning with a strong pedagogical basis underpinned by characteristics of both situated and networked learning.
