Beyond the Yellow Brick Road: Mobile Web 2.0 Informing a New Institutional E-Learning Strategy
ARTICLE

Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks Volume 15, Number 4, ISSN 1939-5256

Abstract

Mobile learning (m-learning) has moved beyond the realms of fantasy to become a viable platform for contextual learning that bridges formal and informal learning environments. This paper overviews how mobile Web 2.0 has been instrumental in facilitating pedagogical change and informing an institution's new e-learning strategy that focuses upon social constructivist pedagogies. The project developed an intentional community of practice model for supporting new technology integration, pedagogical development, and institutional change. Beginning with a small selection of early adopter trials, the results of the research are now informing a wider integration of wireless mobile computing.
