Ideas, experiments and observations as they occur [and I have time] relating to teaching and learning in a secondary school - special focus on ICT.

Garry’s Rambles » Mobile learning or learning in a mobile age?

Garry’s Rambles » Mobile learning or learning in a mobile age?
This has led me to the Kaleidoscope site and that has led me to a project mGBL – mobile Game-Based Learning

The result of this project is a software platform which enables the cost effective development of learning games on mobile phones. Different ways to connect the real with the virtual world are implemented e.g. graphical codes on buildings which can be read by camera phones. These games can be used stand-alone but also as support for traditional classroom-based learning processes.
The mobile phone is the portable device that students will use to connect to elements of the real and virtual worlds and to the game machine.

I wonder if the Podmo development might link in with this. Certainly the Deb Polson work does.
