The workshop is for researchers and practitioners in industry and education with an interest in developing new approaches to mobile and contextual learning. This includes the design of new technology and software for mobile learning, as well as research and development in technology-supported informal and lifelong learning. A central aim of the workshop is to broaden the horizons of mobile learning, to explore possibilities for experiential learning, personal learning projects, on the job learning, and just-in-time learning. It will also provide a showcase for new learning technologies and solutions, including wearable learning devices, learning organisers, and multimedia content delivery to handheld devices.
