Heading off to London to the Institute of Education on Tuesday afternoon to take part in a debate entitled "Mobile learning; handheld learning? What do we mean?" with Norbert Pachler, Graham Brown-Martin and Elizabeth Hartnell-Young. I think the distinction is slightly specious on the face of it but nevertheless could throw up some meaningful differences. My position in part is that neither handheld or mobile learning fully address the transformation of all sorts of things including the economy, employment, communities, identity, knowledge and learning as society increasingly engages with near-universal connectedness and mobility.

Anyone interested?

It's at the WLE Centre, Institute of Education, University of London, 20 Bedford Way, WC1H 0AL. Free events with refreshments. Nearest tube Russell Square.
