 ** Conference background and goals*

Mobile Learning where to next? Accelerometers and motion sensors will tell

Since the advent of mobile learning, developments in its practice and
research have been triggered by technological innovation and advancement.
For instance the arrival of laptops, afforded new models of technology
integration and accessibility within the classroom and freed technology
from the ‘imprisonment’ of computer rooms. The appearance of handheld
devices offered potential for the exploitation of contextual outdoor
learning and freed learners and technologies from the confinement of
classrooms. The emergence of mobile phones democratized access to
technology, revolutionized the concept of user generated content and freed
learners and technologies to experiment with technologies outside
classrooms and schools.
The incursion of multi-touch tablets in the mobile learning scene is the
latest technological ‘wave’. Though in early stages, sensationalist
reporting of the ipads *for *Learning (
 initiatives already advocate ipads will displace playdough and finger
painting in Kindergartens and the Horizon report 2011 states ‘*electronic
books are beginning to demonstrate capabilities that challenge the very
definition of reading’ *(

Against this background the relevance and need for mobile learning research
and practice founded upon learning theories, focused on pedagogically
meaningful approaches to mobile learning and systematically evaluated with
appropriate data collection and analysis tools, remains paramount.
The IADIS Mobile Learning 2012 International Conference seeks to provide a
forum for the presentation and discussion of mobile learning research which
illustrate developments in the field.

** Format of the Conference *
The conference will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations. The
proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book and
CD-ROM with ISBN, and will be available also in the IADIS Digital Library
