Inaugural lecture

The Mobile Mind: learning differently with mobile devices

Prof Agnes Kukulska-Hulme
This event took place on 9th August 2011
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
We have come a long way since mobile phones and other portable devices were first used in education. Mobile learning is still controversial yet its growth is seemingly unstoppable, exploiting powerful combinations of small devices, ready access, learner generated content and always-on connectivity. It holds the promise of a more compassionate world where learning differently can be directly for the benefit of others. The talk will make special reference to mobile language learning, a land of opportunity where human ingenuity prevails and where you can witness all the joys and perils of learning on the move.
