Call for paper submission for a Special issue of ALT Journal (ALT-J), Research in Learning Technology: "Mobile and Contextual Learning"
Mobile learning is rapidly growing from a set of research projects into
worldwide deployment of services for classrooms, field trips, workplace
training, tourism and informal education. Major projects have developed
generic platforms for mobile learning and explored the opportunities
for supporting the continuity of technology-mediated learning across
locations and life transitions. Smaller projects have often tried out
new pedagogical approaches and investigated how learning on portable
devices interweaves with learners' everyday lives, personal interests
and individual learning needs.
The aim of this special issue of ALT-J is to develop and publish a
timely collection of papers representing current research, developments
and ideas in mobile and contextual learning. Of particular interest are
papers that go beyond descriptions of objects and activities to build
links between practice and pedagogy, and offer conceptual,
methodological and analytical rigour.
